Microsorum pteropus "Green Gnome"
This type of Java fern is polymorphic, which means it has many different leaf forms and growing sizes. In the Western Ghats, a mountain range in Southwestern India, our attention was drawn to a very compact growing variety. It settles in shady areas in splash water regions of streams and cascades. When living emerged, it grows a bit larger, but under water it remains compact and short. Attractive features are the strong venation and the slightly bullous leaf blades.
This new variety is perfectly suited for Nano Cubes and Aquascaping!
