I have a variety of ferns in my tanks, and I did what you did. (I didn't want them floating.) Every one of my ferns (Java, And different Tropical ferns) now have rooted, and are sending off baby's from the leaves. I first thought the ferns were going to die because of the black spots on the leaves. It turns out these black spots started to grow roots and in a few weeks there were new leaf shoots coming off the spots. Now I have about 30 pants that have baby's growing from the leaves, and have replanted some by snipping the areas that have the sprouts, and weighting them down on the bottom with a pebble to hold them in place, and they have taken root, and have started the same process. They really are a very easy plant to grow.
