Fern

Ferns are vascular plants that are characterized by three major distinctions. Firstly, ferns can grow root systems from their rhizomes. This characteristic differentiates them from mosses. Another characteristic of a fern is that new leaves that form from the rhizome uncurl upward. The last characteristic of a fern is that ferns grow spores from sporocarps to reproduce if grown outside of the water.

Ferns are low light or shade plants. They grow best in shaded areas of the aquascape, e.g. under high-growing stem plants or under driftwoods.

Listed below are ferns that are commonly kept in aquascapes:
