Epiphytic plants like Anubias, Bucephalandra or ferns can be combined perfectly with the hardscape in aquascaping. They can be attached to driftwood and rocks, where they will soon take root and grow. Among the rarer aquatic plants, the manifold species and forms of the genus Bucephalandra are especially charming, as they flower under water quite frequently, and as their leaves can assume the most different shades of green. Anubias are very robust plants, usually of an intensive green colour. Especially the small-staying forms of Anubias barteri are perfect for aquascaping.
Among the ferns, Microsorum pteropus is characterised by its large number of different variants. Narrow-leaved forms like "Narrow" or the extremely narrow-leaved "Needle Leaf" are perfect epiphytes for hardscape. With its feathered leaves, Bolbitis heudelotii reminds of ferns found in dense pristine jungle.
Epiphytic water plants are highly suitable for aquascaping purposes and can bring an enormous sense of natural beauty to a layout.
