Description

Vesicularia ferriei 'Weeping' is said to originate from China. It was distributed by Oriental Aquarium Plants verbreitet. 'Weeping' is a strong overhanging densely ramified moss. Its emerged form has some upright shots, under water "Weeping moss" develops its characteristic overhanging growth habit. This moss is especially suitable for attaching it to decorative driftwood, as it brings depth and contrast to any layout. Please note that the shoots of this moss hardly attach themselves to the substrate. Weeping moss is easy to care for and grows relatively fast. It needs trimming from time to time to maintain its special appearance.

"Weeping Moss" is said to have been imported from China. It was identified as Vesicularia ferrei by Prof. B.C. Tan (Singapore). This species is also distributed in the south of Japan. In nature it has a creeping habit and grows on wet rocks covered with sandy soil, on moist riverbanks and on wet soil on rivulets. (1).

The submersed form of this moss can be identified on its clearly overhanging frondshaped shoots (see photos) that remind of a weeping willow.
The leaves and the relatively broad leaf cells look rather ike those of V. montagnei ("Christmas moss"), however, the leaves do not end in an acuminate tip but are more acute and relatively obtuse. V. montagnei as well as other Vesicularia species may also develop overhanging shoots, but not as bent as those of V. ferriei, whose shoots are clearly bent downward. (read more)
