WAVE MOSS / Microsorum pteropus Prothallium

QTY - 1x1" MESH (fresh tied starter portion)



This ULTRA RARE Wave Moss is a must have for your collection of rare plants! Its a stunner and although it resembles a liverwort (like Subwassertang or Pellia) its actually a gametophyte (prothallium) of the Java Fern, Microsorum pteropus. Its also considerably smaller structure then subwassertang and takes on a compact wavy form as it matures and fills in. It would add a beautiful touch to the forefront of your nature aquarium or spread out over wood or rocks for a more natural look. 


It is quite easy to grow however its a very slow grower and should be secured to mesh wood or rocks.

NOTE- Any plant that is not tissue cultured is subject to snails. Here at Shrimp Life, we love snails and keep them in most of our tanks
