Bolbitis sp. 'Prothallium'

Bolbitis sp. 'Prothallium' comes from the tropical regions of Africa, a fern with very beautiful transparent green leaves, 15-25 cm tall. When planting do not cover the rhizome because it will rot, and it is best to plant Bolbitis on a root or stone. Keep the plant in position with fishing line until it has gained a hold. Easy to propagate by splitting the horizontal rhizome. Growth can be increased considerably by supplying CO2, and is only optimal in soft, slightly acidic water. This fern makes a great midground to background plant with long, textured, dark-green fronds. Often these fronds will have a semi-transparent look, especially with new leaves. It provides a nice contrast to nearly any other aquarium plant and can be used in a large grouping or as a smaller focal grouping. It looks especially nice when used as a dark backdrop for a bright-green foreground plant, or even for the dark red of a tiger lotus.

Price per: plant with 5 leaves on the rhizome.

This item can be shipped internationally.
