Description

Vesicularia cf. montagnei "Krabi" is a creeping, finely ramified moss, found in the calcium-rich waters near Krabi in southern Thailand. It looks more delicate than standard Christmas moss (Vesicularia montagnei) and is very similar to the so-named "Mini Christmas Moss", however it has a firmer structure. Its species belonging is still unclear; it is probably closely related to Vesicularia montagnei.

This tropical water moss is quite undemanding and tolerates hard water. It grows not too slowly. However it looks best with at least moderate lighting and good nutrient and CO2 supply. It can be tied or glued to wood or rock or stuffed into the gaps of the hardscape. Its creeping shoots attach themselves to the substrate by their rhizoids.

Vesicularia cf. montagnei "Krabi" is a decorative, rare aquarium moss that is equally well-suited for the aquascaping as Vesicularia montagnei and the "Mini Christmas Moss".

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

This moss was discovered in one of the calcareous lakes near Krabi in the south of Thailand. Bryologist Prof. Benito C. Tan (Singapore) found out that it is related to Vesicularia montagnei but wasn't able to determine its exact species.

It looks very much like the moss called Vesicularia sp. "Mini Christmas Moss" in this database, however, its shoots are more rigid. Vesicularia cf. montagnei "Krabi" has dense, regularly branching delicate shoots that attach to rocks and driftwood with the help of their rhizoids. It comes from a lake with a high carboate hardnessa and thus does well in hardwater tanks.
