Re: Pellia endiviifolia/ P. endiviaefolia


I found an entry "Pellia endiviaefolia in my
Japanese plant ID book ("Water picture book
to enjoy with Aquarium" by Pisces.)

It lists its origin as Northern hemisphere.
Grows in the rivers and water reservoirs fed
by spring water. It prefers medium hard water
with pH range from slightly acidic to
slightly alkaline, although it tolerates most
water conditions.

There is a similar looking moss that grows in
Eastern Europe called Riccardia
chamedryfollia.  Shorter and much more
delicate looking than Pellia endiviaefolia.
Its requirements are similar to Java moss or
Pellia endiviaefolia.
