Re:Plantlets on Java Fern
The plantlets which LeeAnn referred to on the Java Fern are often left on to
produce a "bunch" effect. If you are only interested in propagating as
many as possible, then take them off when you think they have enough hairlike
rootlet type holdfasts developed, fasten them to a weight with thread or
other and place them back into the tank to grow. Flytying line works great
to fasten them and does not usually rot quickly.
If you are interested in producing a bunch-like effect, don't separate them.
They will not do any harm to the originals except to shade them somewhat.
When they get too big then divide the whole bunch. I find this latter
method to be the most satisfying and successful.
