Java Fern (Microsorum pteropus)

Java Fern (Microsorum pteropus) can be grown very easily on a driftwood. This is one of the least demanding plants used in a planted aquarium. This is a low-light plant. Under intense light, the leaves tend to "burn" and develop large black areas around the edges.

If you have Java ferns in your tank, put a net around the inlet of your filter and it check regularly. You will find tiny Java ferns are stuck on the net. Keep them in a bowl or a jar beside your mail tank. Change the water as needed. Drop a dose once in while or when dosing your main tank. Within few weeks you will have enough to exchange or even sale.

Just to add that Java fern also grows perfectly with no substrate to attach to, directly on the bare floor of the tank.
This is how I grow it successfully in my killifish tanks, where light is very dimmed too.
