BOLBITIS BROADLEAF (Bolbitis heteroclita)

Product Description
$6.99
Maximum quantity available reached.
The El Niño Fern (Bolbitis heteroclita), also known as  Asian Water Fern or Bolbitis Broadleaf, is a beautiful  and undemanding but uncommon plant for the freshwater aquarium. Its long, flowing, green leaves are very elegant and delicate in appearance. Unlike many plants, the El Niño Fern attaches itself to and propagates on aquarium décor.  
 
El Niño Fern is relatively rare because it is very slow growing. It only requires low to moderate lighting and nutrient rich soil, although its growth rate can be increased through CO2 injection/supplementation. It reproduces through rhizome division and the production of offshoots, and it thrives in areas with strong water currents. El Niño Fern should not be planted with its rhizome (roots) buried in the substrate because it will rot and recede. Instead, it can be attached to rocks, driftwood, and other decorations in the aquarium, or it can be planted on top of the substrate as long as the roots are not completely buried. Due to its delicate leaves, it should never be housed with large crayfish, medium to large cichlids, goldfish, or any other animals that are prone to picking at plants.
 
CO2 supplementation is beneficial, but not necessary for this plant. Like most plants, El Niño Fern will benefit from supplementation such as Seachem Flourish, Flourish Excel, Nitrogen and other plant supplements.

Our El Niño Ferns are well-established portions and are ideal for the low-light or low-tech aquarium. This plant is very hardy and resilient!
