Plant spotlight - Java moss

Java moss (Vesicularia dubyana)


Java moss (Vesicularia dubyana) is perfect for both beginner and experienced aquarists alike. It can be attached to aquarium rocks, bogwood, spider wood or can be added to ornaments to create a natural look.

It is best to use a special glue to attach it to the rocks and woods but some prefer to use fishing line to tie it on. Once established, it will grow across the rock or wood.

Successful growing of these plants requires good light levels and plenty of carbon dioxide (CO2), which can be dispensed either using liquids such as CO2 Booster or a CO2 injection kit, like these ones available in our shop.
