It is native to Southeast Asia and is often found in slow-moving waters like rivers and streams. The plant has long, narrow leaves that are a vibrant green color, and it can grow up to 13 inches tall. Java Fern is known for its hardiness and ability to grow in a variety of conditions, making it an ideal choice for beginners.

One of the most unique features of Java Fern is that it can grow on a variety of surfaces, including rocks, driftwood, and even the aquarium glass. It is a slow-growing plant that does not require much maintenance, but it does benefit from regular fertilization and a moderate level of lighting. Java Fern can be propagated by dividing the rhizome, which is the thick stem that connects the leaves to the roots.
