    There are several ways to reproduce the Java fern and so the time span varies although it seems to be very quick in any method. An article Reproduction Java Fern will give you some insight as to how, how long and what to do.

    Anacharis is truly the easiest plants to have in any cold-tropical water aquariums! I only started out with a couple of bunches and now I have a full 20 gallon aquarium dedicated to anacharis! It will grow rougely. The best part is that it can withstand extremely cold temperatures meaning it can overwinter in outside ponds. The leaves will melt and it will regrow again once spring comes.

      Can you tell me what your tank conditions are to have it grow so well? I need to culture this plant for teaching purposes and having a full tank dedicated to it is exactly what my goal is. So far I have not been that lucky.

    This type of fern does very well in graval and it will consume almost all the fish food that is near it in the graval but you still need to give the fern at least 5 - 7 hours of aquarium or sunlight every day

    Another question, does the java fern grow into the substrate from the rock/driftwood it is tied to?

      Generally, they must be tied down. Depending on how soluble the driftwood is, there is a possibility that they will grow into it. Especially, if the wood is more rotten.

    Everyone says to tie the fern down but all the pics show it in the substrate? And I assume there is a difference between java fern and java moss? Just to make sure I get it right the java fern gets tied down? Thx

      The java fern is a hardy plant that most fish will not eat. Might take a little nibble now and then but the fish probably won't destroy new off shoots.

    I have two of these plants and I really like them, but one of them only has leaves at the top....but they both seem to be growing well.
