Java Fern is a great easy plant that can thrive in a wide range of water parameters. It is slow growing and will thrive when floating, planted, or attached to rock/driftwood. The only thing that you need to watch out for is not to bury the rhizome under gravel or sand. Java Fern provides great cover for all types of fish and is sturdy enough to hold up to even rambunctious fish.

To minimize shipping delays we only ship live plants on Monday and Tuesday. Plant orders placed on Tuesday or later will ship the following week.
If your local area had extreme heat or cold we recommend having your mail held at the post office on the day of arrival. This is free and can be done online or at the post office. That way your plants stay indoors until you pick them up to protect them from the elements.
We do our best to remove any visible hitch hikers from your plants before we ship but it is impossible to be 100% sure that we get everything. If you're concerned about getting any potential hitch hikers we recommend rinsing your plants before adding them to your pond or aquarium.
