You will receive one rhizome with 2-3 leaves.
Bolbitis, AKA African Water Fern, comes from West Africa, a fern with beautiful, transparent green leaves, 15-40 cm tall and wide. When planting, do not cover the rhizome because it will rot, and it is best to plant Bolbitis heudelotii on a root or stone. Keep the plant in position with fishing line until it has gained a hold. Easy to propagate by splitting the horizontal rhizome.
Supply of CO2 will considerably enhance the growth, which is only optimal in soft, slightly acidic water.

Bolbitis Heudelotii, also known as African Water Fern, is a visually striking fern with finely textured, light green leaves. Unlike many other ferns, it is not an epiphyte but rather a rhizomatous plant that can be attached to hardscape or planted in the substrate. Its unique appearance adds a touch of elegance to any aquascape.
To cultivate Bolbitis Heudelotii successfully, provide it with moderate to low lighting conditions. This plant is adaptable and can grow in a wide range of water parameters. It prefers a nutrient-rich substrate or can be attached to rocks or driftwood. Take care not to bury the rhizome when planting or attaching it, as this can lead to rotting. Regular fertilization is recommended to support healthy growth and vibrant coloration.
