Water Sprite (Ceratopteris Thalictroides) can often be sold under different names including Water Fern, Indian Fern, and Indian Water Fern. A Water Sprite plant is one of the more versatile aquarium plants around and can thrive either planted in substrate or left floating in the water.
I am new to aquarium plants and when these first arrived with a couple of brown stems with brown leaves I was a little disappointed but after reading the card that came with the order I decided to wait and see what would happen. WOW! All the stems, including the brown ones started putting out bright green leaves! Amazing! I would like to order more plants from Windy City Aquariums.
I learned only recently that the light I have from my new tank isn't good enough for plants even if they don't need much light. I just think for beginner plants, it would be nice for there to be a warning that some tank sets don't have adequate lighting for plants. There's still a lot of green to it, but it is starting to melt. They gave me a good length, so just do your research beforehand (really, I learned this from reading the description of another vendor as I was looking for another Nesaea Pedicellata "Golden" to replace my melted one)!
I'm getting a better light soon, and I'm going to add another good pellet near its roots.
Started adapting fast in my tank and I haven’t had that happen with any of the plants I’ve bought from my lfs so far 😍 I did get a snail with it but it is my fault for not quarantining them beforehand but I did transfer him to my other tank with snails and I haven’t seen anymore since. 😌
The two springs I ordered were green and vibrant when I put them in my tank. There hasn't been any new growth yet in ~10 days or so but I'm patient. There was a new little fern leaf uncurling from the base when I took it out of the package and there hasn't been any action from that since. It might still be adapting to my tank. I love the texture of the leaves. Once it grows and branches out it will look great and hopefully provide a little rest spot for my fish. I had previously bought an aquarium fern at a big box pet shop but it disintegrated so I hope these take.
This water sprite adapted very fast to my tank and started growing immediately. Very vibrant green.
