    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.

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've been a regular visitor in your website, and I love it. It provides useful information to a hobbyist like me. Upon my research in the internet my particular concern is this plant the water sprite, that it is not a true freshwater aquarium plant, it is a marsh plant not to be planted in the aquarium coz it will eventually die. Which bothers me coz I have newly planted this kind of plant in my aquarium. Is this true? Please help me on this matter. Thanks

      I have started to put pieces in a container and now have too many and am willing to sell some. Iwouldn't know how to post them.
      I have had plants for a long time and had no trouble with them.
      Some in tropical tank and some in cold water tank, they grow easily in either. The lights in the tanks go off and on automatically in the aquariums.
