Description

The Water Sprite or Fine leaf Indian fern is a highly decorative, fast growing fern that?s suitable as solitary plant in larger tanks. It is also labeled Ceratopteris siliquosa and C. thalictroides "Fein".

This aquatic fern grows submerged and also as a floating plant.

Ceratopteris thalictroides is an amphibic fern found in many tropical regions of the world in shallow waters and on muddy ground, amongst others in rice paddies. In some tropical regions of Asia the emersed leaves of this species are used as vegetable. In nature, this plant is said to be an annual plant, however, it can be cultivated over several years without problems. The species contains many local forms, and in aquaristics, varietys with more coarsely or finely pinnate submersed leaves are common (photos 1 to 3 show an especially delicate form of C. thalictroides). The species has been known in the hobby for many years, also under the synonym of Ceratopteris siliquosa as well as under the vernacular names of water sprite, Indian fern, Oriental waterfern and water hornfern.

Guter Eindruck

Ceratopteris thalictroides - in Vitro XL

Zahlreich kleine, aber gut entwickelte Pflanzen. Lassen sich unter langsam fließendem Wasser gut auseinandernehmen. Ich bin gespannt, wie sie sich entwickeln.
