| || | Does Java fern grow normally in gravel?
I planted a java fern in my tank gravel a few months ago, and a few weeks after planting it in the gravel, it was growing fine! (at least I think so). The problem is, all the websites and books I read about Java fern say that it MUST be tied to rock/wood or whatever. So, I bought another Java fern that was already tied to a piece of driftwood. Strangely, This one has lost almost all of its leaves, and has turned almost completely brown.
Meanwhile, in the fern I just shoved deep into the gravel had new leaftips and roots coming out of the old leaf tips. Is this ok? It looks perfectly fine....
