This is a creeping plant that grows on rocks, bogwood, etc. It thrives in dim light and likes warm temperatures. You should, however be careful when purchasing this plant. There are many mosses tagged as Java, but many of them are not meant to be grown underwater. A good dealer will know the difference. The genus name for Java moss is Vesicularia Dubyana. (Note: Many companies claim to have this in stock, only to give a substitution...WE HAVE IT IN STOCK.) .)

NOTE: This is "real" Java Moss (Vesicularia Dubyana), not "Willow moss" that most other companies try to substitute.

Small portion but February 27, 2014
Reviewer: Paul Sucietto from Cincinnati, OH United States  
I know that you don't need any once it grows and I'll add to this when it starts (slow growing).

1 order is... a tablespoon full? December 5, 2013
Reviewer: Patrick Bewley from Lufkin, TX United States  
I ordered 3 bunches of this, after reading the reviews.   Last reviewer stated "golf-ball sized in a cup".

Yet, what I received MIGHT have ALL fit into a  golf-ball, and with plenty of room to spare for more.

The small ziplock contained a portion thinner than a pencil, and about as much area as a dollar bill.

Excellent. February 4, 2011
Reviewer: Huw Powell from Lee, NH United States  
I bought two golf balls, I don't know why I bothered with two, but I did.  i was on a roll on my first order!

Once this plant is established, you will never need more, and can go into business selling it.

Anyway, I shoved them both into holes in an old chunk of wood I put in my new 75.  Two weeks later, both are "java mossing" - growing pretty green tendrils attached to the wood and looking happy.

Oh, and few bits that "got away" seem to be colonizing other parts of my tank, too.

Let's hope the tetras decide it's good baby-making material!

I used to work at a pet store in the 80s that got the only good plants around.  The plants I bought here remind me of that quality.

OK January 4, 2011
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from CO United States  
This is my 3rd order with aquariumplants.com, and i got a couple bunches of the moss. A lot of it came in brown and the pieces were pretty small. Fast forward a few months and it has grown back slowly, as expected for the plant.

Portion smaller than in the past September 3, 2010
Reviewer: MF from San Francisco, CA United States  
I've bought java moss from aquariumplants before and the portion size was bigger.

The first portion, about a year ago, was roughly the size of a tennis ball. The most recent portion came in a golf ball sized tupperware-like container. 40% of the contents was dead. The remaining 60% is still alive in our low-tech tank.

Expect about 40% of this moss to be brown upon arrive (even next day air).

This is the only so-so product I have received from aquariumplants.
