Trident Java Fern - Microsorum 'Trident' on Driftwood

The Trident Java Fern (Microsorum 'Trident') is a popular and visually striking aquarium plant, now conveniently attached to driftwood. This unique combination adds a natural, decorative element to your aquarium while providing the benefits of easy maintenance and enhanced aquascaping flexibility.

Key Features:

1. Unique Leaf Shape: The Trident Java Fern is renowned for its distinct, trident-shaped leaves. These narrow, deeply lobed leaves create a delicate, feathery appearance that adds texture and visual interest to any aquascape.

2. Pre-Attached to Driftwood: For ease of placement and instant aesthetic appeal, this plant comes pre-attached to a piece of driftwood. This makes it simple to add to your aquarium without the need for additional anchoring or adjustments.

3. Low Maintenance: The Trident Java Fern is a hardy plant that requires minimal care. It is perfect for both beginner and experienced aquarists, thriving in a wide range of water conditions and lighting setups.

4. Enhances Aquarium Environment: This plant not only beautifies your aquarium but also provides hiding spots and breeding grounds for fish and invertebrates. It contributes to the overall health of the aquarium by improving water quality through natural filtration.

Care Instructions:

  • Lighting: Low to moderate lighting is ideal. The Trident Java Fern does not require intense light and can thrive under standard aquarium lighting.
  • Water Parameters: Suitable for a temperature range of 68-82°F (20-28°C) and a pH range of 6.0-7.5. It can tolerate a variety of water hardness levels.
  • Substrate: No special substrate is needed since the plant is already attached to driftwood. This setup is versatile and can be easily relocated within the aquarium.
  • Fertilization: While not necessary, occasional supplementation with liquid fertilizers can promote healthier growth. CO2 supplementation is optional but can enhance plant vigor.
  • Maintenance: Prune dead or decaying leaves to keep the plant looking its best. The Trident Java Fern grows slowly, requiring minimal trimming.

Maximum Size: The Trident Java Fern can reach a height of up to 8 inches (20 cm) and spread up to 6 inches (15 cm) across, making it a suitable choice for small to medium aquariums.
