Is this java fern?

I bought a big bunch of java moss at a LFS and in it were about 4 teeny tiny fingertip sized little plants with roots that I think might be java fern! I hope they grow no matter what they are......

That does indeed appear to be baby java fern. :D ((Mine put out a ton of babies when it was adjusting to my tank/being underwater. I've read they only make baby plants when they're stressed.))

Well, that gold is going to groW very slowly. I have tons of baby java fern. They do very little to nothing. Not sure if it's worth the effort to save them from being used as fertilizer.

Small things are cute.

My baby java ferns have holes in them like Swiss cheese. I still save them, but they always get caught in my filter intake. Some of the bettas like to hide their pretty heads underneath them.

You obviously don't treat them like GOLD then, do you?

haha.... you were the one that used the term gold.

I prefer low maintenance aquatic plants. They were fine until I got some sort of leaf mining caterpiller that starting cutting up parts of the leaves and using the little chunks of leaves to hide themselves. I know if I had my snail hunting bettas back then, they would eaten these little leaf cutting menaces.
