Bolbitis

Does anyone have bolbitis plants? I just ordered 4. It sounds like they just need to be left to their own devices and they'll begin to propagate like anubias.

Mine have done fine in water with a pH of 8. Maybe grow slower, but they aren't terribly fast to begin with, being ferns. They also seem to be quite unconcerned with lighting (as long as it's not super low). I really like them, they are full and good for mid-ground. And they just do their own thing, which is always a plus.

These are related to java fern in some way (so I heard somewhere, don't ask me where), and propagate as such.

Yes they will do well tied to wood or rock, I got two from Bob's Tropical Plants and two more on eBay :) They can be hard to find sometimes because they aren't generally regularly stocked. But they're around!

Good to know! I haven't seen any at my Petco, but I bet there's someone who plucks out all the bolbitis in new shipments :P

I've been looking at more info and it seems bolbitis is a fan of water movement, so it likes to be placed near a filter where it can wave around a bit.
