Plant Sizes

The image of the plant you'll be receiving is just an example of what you can expect. Each plant is unique and may vary in size and shape, so it won't be an exact match to the photo. If we provide a size guide, keep in mind that it's just an estimate and that plants can vary in size depending on the time of year.

Bolbitis heudelotii, commonly known as African water fern, is an aquatic plant that belongs to the family of ferns. It is a popular choice among aquarium hobbyists because of its unique appearance and easy care. One of the best ways to showcase this plant in an aquarium is by attaching it to driftwood.

Growing Bolbitis heudelotii on driftwood has several advantages. Firstly, it adds an aesthetic touch to an aquarium by providing a natural-looking habitat for fish and other aquatic creatures. Secondly, the plant's rhizomes, which attach themselves to the wood, can help stabilize the wood, making it less likely to float around. This can be especially useful for aquascaping purposes, where stability is key in creating a desired look. Additionally, Bolbitis heudelotii does not require any substrate, making it an excellent option for aquariums with sand or gravel substrate.

An unusual fact about Bolbitis heudelotii is that it is actually not a true aquatic plant. In the wild, it is usually found growing in or near water, but not submerged. It is adapted to humid environments and can survive underwater because of its rhizomes, which act as a buoyancy device, allowing the plant to float.

Overall, Bolbitis heudelotii on driftwood is a beautiful and easy-to-care-for plant that can enhance the overall look of an aquarium while also providing benefits such as stabilization of driftwood and not requiring a substrate.

Much Bigger than expected

I saw this as nano and figured it would be small, it was much bigger than I expected, which was a pleasant surprise after buying plants elsewhere online, the plant was slightly wilted from travel but seems to be doing well, this is a lovely feature in my shrimp tank and they seem to enjoy this plant

Your plants will be wrapped with recyclable Honey Comb wrap - sounds cool because it is :). It interlocks which means we don't need to use tape either, reducing our impact on the environment.

Not only is delivery fast with DPD Express but it's also green as they offset all the carbon their vehicles produce. Guilt free delivery which we're very proud of...
