Description

Reading Time: 1

A fern which comes from West Africa, Bolbitis heudelotii grows up to 40cm tall. When planting, make sure to not cover the rhizome as it will rot in time. This plant is usually attached to hardscape materials within the aquarium, like rocks or wood, using thin fishing line. If you want to propagate it, just cut the rhizome in half and soon there will be new leaves. Promote its growth by giving it a good amount of CO2 and some proper light.
