About Microsorum Pteropus ‘Narrow’
Microsorum pteropus narrow leaf plants are highly versatile and can grow in areas of the tank that are inaccessible to other species, including wood and stone. One popular approach among aquascapers is to place the flora on a piece of driftwood in the mid-ground or background of the tank. The narrow form of Microsorum pteropus makes it easy to place among other java ferns to add texture.
To propagate Microsorum pteropus narrow leaf plants, cut or break the rhizome apart. The underside and tips of the leaves, as well as the roots, grow daughter plants that can be cut and planted. If you are planting the daughter plants on a rock or driftwood, use a string to secure mother leaves to the plant.
