Creepy plant!
 
Now i have seen a lot of strange things when it comes to nature but never what this plant is doing...
Look at the plant in the center of the pic and tell me that those are not roots and new leafs growing from the ... feals!
And yeah, we knowz there's also algae on it but it's being worked on(neritine zebra soon to come, bout 10 of em)

Yeah thats how they reproduce... apparently they also send plantlets out when they are trying to root to something?

What type of plant is it?

That's a java fern, and that's totally normal. Once those little plantlets get big enough you can pull them off and put them somewhere else.

Yeah, gonna wait till they grow as i could use some in other places but still a very very creepy way to have kids! :lol:
