Common Name: Ordinary bolbitis
Scientific Name: Bolbitis heteroclita
Bolbitis heteroclita is a slow growing amphibious fern and can survive under very weak light. However, it is most beautiful under stronger light. It is one of the more challenging plants to grow in an aquarium.
Leaves grown under submersed conditions are smaller and wrinkled. High temperatures will usually cause the plants to wither and burn. Growth is optimal by supplying a current, CO2 and soft, slightly acidic water.
Care must be taken not to cover the rhizome as it will rot. The common method is to tie them to wood or rocks.
