ABC PLANTS - Kalimantan fern NEW SPECIES!!
|Availability:||Out of stock|
A yet-unidentified aquatic fern cultured from a sample collected in the fresh waters of Kalimantan, Indonesia. This plant does not seem to be well known to the aquarium hobby. We believe that this plant is a true aquatic, having been submerged and growing in our aquariums for over a year without showing signs of stress, rot or melt. It is quite slow growing and has been doing well in low tech as well as high tech tanks. It appears to be similar in some ways to the rare and mysterious "Dark Spleenwort Fern" (Hymenasplenium obscurum) though it was found outside that species usual range of Africa and South Asia. Recommended for adventurous aquarists looking for something completely different.
