Description

Java moss is an easy-to-care freshwater moss that has become a popular aquarium plant due to its hardiness and its low light requirements. Native to Southeast Asia, java moss can be seen growing vigorously on rocks and pieces of driftwood in the rivers of most tropical climates. It is often included in planted tropical freshwater aquariums as it provides protective cover from hungry fish to ornamental shrimp and fish fry.

 

Java moss grows best in warmer water of 72-82°F (22-27°C) but can survive at temperatures as low as 59°F (15°C) and as high as 90°F (32°C). It can be grown in a pH range of 5.5 to 8.0. It is a fast growing moss, and can be easily propagated by division. As it grows it should be trimmed to promote further growth. Only a small portion is required to grow enough for a full aquarium. It can tolerate all kinds of water quality, including slightly brackish water, and will grow in most light conditions. Java moss can also be trained on netting and mesh to grow in a variety of ways, such as moss walls, moss caves and moss mats.
