Description

An attractive, relatively small Java fern variant found at a brackish water location on the island of Panay (Philippines). It has a striking bullous leaf structure and a fresh green colour. It is as undemanding as other Java fern variants. Rather hard to come by in trade these days.

Microsorum pteropus, or Java fern, has long been used in the aquarium hobby. Its cultivation is very easy, it is a decorative plant and it is also readily available in trade.
During the last years, increasingly more different forms of the originally quite large and broad-leaved Java fern have been imported. One of the most attractive forms is Microsorum pteropus 'Philippine'. Its relatively small, fresh green leaves are pronouncedly structured and have a "hammered" surface, which makes this a very attractive plant. In aquaristics, M. pteropus 'Philippine' was introduced by the Danish aquatic plant nursery Tropica.

Even though the various Java fern varietys and cultivars look quite differently, their demands regarding water, fertiliser and light are more or less identical. Microsorum pteropus 'Philippine', however, is an exception. (read more)
