Re: [APD] Java fern plantlets

Java fern plantlets and pieces have a tendency to float in
the current and snag just about anywhere you can think of
in the aquarium. Floating on the surface, tethered to an
object by human intervention or by chance, the stuff tends
to grow and spread easily once it gets going.

So long as you keep them wet and lighted and the water has
nutrients, the big ones will gorw littel ones and the
little ones will grow.
