Plant Sizes

Just wanted to give you a heads up that 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.

Our Delivery Promise to you

If you choose Express Delivery, we will replace any plants that are damaged due to delays. Express Delivery is a fast, trackable, and reliable option with a one hour delivery window. It also ensures that the plants will arrive in the same condition as when they left our facility. If you choose a different postage option, such as Tracked 24 or Tracked 48, you will not be covered for any damages due to delays and will assume the risk yourself if the plants do not arrive in good condition. Express Delivery includes an insurance policy, which may cost more but provides added peace of mind.

If you order before 4pm we dispatch the same working day (Mon-Fri). Shipping prices start at £4.99 depending on the speed of delivery required.

Originating from Asia the Microsorum pteropus 'Windelov' is one of many different varieties of this species, each with their own leaf shape. The 'Windelov' has 15cm long leaves that are narrow and five branched.

This plant is extremely undemanding and will grow best tied to rock or wood, this particular plant grows best on Lava rock. Light isn't an issue as this plant will grow well in both low lighting and high lighting tanks.

Healthy Plants

Plants arrived quickly and are very healthy. Only once did I get a plant from elsewhere and I got snails, never had any on plants bought here. Lesson well learned. Only place I trust.

Java fern

I bought both the Microsorum pteropus XL and the Microsorum pteropus Windelov and both are in excellent condition and I hope they do well in my 180 litre aquarium.

Microsorum windelov

Microsorum windelov or windelov fern is a brilliant plant for any aquarium. I've split my pot between two tanks because the pot contains enough windelov and it looks like I've actually bought two! It's growing well in my betta tank with a temperature of 26c and it's growing well in my room temperature shrimp tank 20/22c. I've never had this plant before and I love it. I find it adds much needed texture to a tank, it's great to feature on its own on a nice rock or piece of driftwood,or you can place it in between other plants for a great look. The plant arrived with others I ordered. The quality of the windelov was superb as was all the other plants,the packaging was second to none,and they arrived without a single blemish! The delivery was fast . Aqua Essentials should be the ONLY place you think about buying from.

Really interesting plant

Not had this type before and I'm very impressed. Great size, very healthy and as always spot on service. Highly recommended

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...

We guarantee you'll be happy with your order. But if you're not, please contact us so we can resolve. We are 100% here to help and will always do our best to resolve any issues - that's a promise.
