Vesicularia dubyana, commonly known as Java moss, is an especially hardy and low-maintenance aquarium plant, making it a popular choice amongst aquarists. It is native to southeast Asia, where it grows on rocks, along riverbeds, and on tree trunks in warm and humid climates. Not only tolerant of a broad range of temperatures, Java moss is also especially easy to cultivate, as it readily clings to various surfaces and spreads both vertically and horizontally.
NOTE: The moss you receive may contain some brown bits, which is 100% normal and as long as most of the moss is green, it will regrow. While it does fine in low light, higher lighting will help the moss to grow more vibrantly green. Refunds or replacements will not be issued for moss with browning parts.

I received this plant within three days of ordering. I ordered the 2oz container, thinking it’d only be partly full, but the baggy was absolutely packed with moss. The moss was a beautiful luscious green and fit perfectly onto my moss mesh attached to my glass. I do have to say though, I tried this before with zebra danios and they got themselves stuck inside the mesh and died; my tetras and glass cats however are smart enough to not do that. By day three, my moss was growing limbs out and flowing within the current of my wavemaker. 14/10 recommend.
If you want a plant you can literally plant and forget about this is it. While I’m still trying to “train it” to grow more on my driftwood it an awesome addition to my tank. The shrimp I have love it and honestly I love that it covers up any blemishes on the driftwood. It’s a win win
