Bare Root, Potted

This plant normally grows fast, but the addition of CO2 may be necessary to promote growth. In small, open aquariums, it can grow out of the aquarium and form beautiful surface leaves. The finely branched leaves are very decorative and provide good contrast to other leaf shapes. In good light, Ceratopteris thalictroides grows fast and helps prevent algae by consuming large amounts of nutrients. This makes it a good starter plant in small aquariums. I personally recommend this beautiful plant for initial setups. It is fast growing and so helps to outcompete algae. It is the first plant I started with as a child. Undemanding and easy to grow.

Never seen growth like this January 2, 2012
Reviewer: Steven Nilsen from Belmont, MA United States  
Without CO2 injection, this plant grows like a weed.  Substrate could be anything.  Grows up at least 18" and spread out on surface.  Large branches quickly become new plants as they are bunched out.  Very aggressive.  

Baby plants even grow well in a low light tank...

My betta really likes swimming in it, but otherwise the fish just tend to swim around it.
