This very decorative variant of Ceratopteris thalictroides was found in flowing waters of northern Vietnam. The Vietnamese water sprite differs from standard C. thalictroides by ligther, yellow-green coloration, and the pinnae of its filigree fronds are arranged in a sharper angle so that the fronds have a more "streamlined" structure. Alse Ceratopteris thalictroides "Vietnam" develops into a large plant with about 50 cm long, 20 cm wide leaves.
To Ceratopteris thalictroides "Vietnam", the same applies as for standard C. thalictroides: it is quite undemanding but grows best with at least medium lighting and good nutrient supply. On old, especially detached leaves adventitious plantlets appear, making the propagation easy.
With its filigree, light green fronds, Ceratopteris thalictroides "Vietnam" is an eyecatcher in the midground to background of not too small tanks, as solitary plant or small, loose group. It should also fit well into stream biotope tanks.
