Description

Fontinalis antipyretica, or willow moss, is a large moss mainly distributed in the northern hemisphere. It is a true aquatic moss, which is found in many flowing as well as stagnant waters. Fontinalis antipyretica forms large, deep green bushes, and it is ideal for cold-water as well as moderately warm tropical aquaria.

Please be aware that the submerse form of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.

Fontinalis antipyretica, or willow moss, is most widely spread in the northern hemisphere. It is a true aquatic moss and can be found in many flowing and stagnant waterbodies.

F. antipyretica is a very variable moss. On the one hand, its look depends a lot on the conditions it grows in, on the other hand, there are various forms that maintain their differences even if cultivated under the same conditions. Several varieties have been described, e.g. the large-growing form F. antipyretica var. gigantea. Sometimes, F. antipyretica is hard to discern from other, far more uncommon Fontinalis species like F. hypnoides or F. howellii.

Willow moss is the most well-known aquatic moss native to Europe, and it has found its way into aquarium literature, too. (read more)

Ich habe dieses Moos seit einem Monat und es wächst zügig zu einem schönen Busch heran. Es sieht im Kontrast zu anderen helleren Pflanzen sehr gut aus. Es ist einfach zu pflegen.
