Narrow Leaf Java Fern
Could someone verify if this plant goes on driftwood or in the soil. I was thinking driftwood but I do not see the root on this plant similiar to Anubias.( Rhizome or whatever its called :lol: )

Java ferns should be attatched to something, not planted.
The rhyzome is the stiff green part that runs horizontally, perpendicular to the leaves. http://hydrophytesblog.com/wp-conten...s-raft-i-s.jpg
Whatever happens, make sure that part is never buried into the substrate. The brown roots function mainly to just attach themselves to driftwood and such, but it takes them a while to take hold. In my experience I found that young, developing plants attached themselves the most readily. The easiest method is to try to find nooks and crannies to wedge the roots/rhizome into, and then the plant will do the rest and develop roots that grab hold of the object.

Yeah this is my first Java Fern and it is attached to driftwood. The rhizome looks a bit different than that of a Anubias. I watched a few Youtube videos on the plant since starting the thread. A guy can learn about anything on Youtube LOL.
