For sale is a literal java moss carpet grown on a three, two
inch hexagon tiles. Arrange them in any pattern you need or use them each separately.
Length of each strand varies between 1/4 and 3/4 inches, many are longer . This
is not a clump of moss tied to each tile but dozens java moss plantlet's placed
on a tile and held in place with nylon netting similar to Takashi Amano's methods
for anchoring riccia and similar plants. Over a slow growing process of several
months in relatively cool water, very low to no nutrients the plantlet's form
the mass depicted in the provided picture. Because no hyper growth methods are
used the moss should adapt quickly to any suitable environment and all the materials
used in the process are completely aquarium safe.
If you are looking for an established plant with great growing
potential that will look good from day one this will be a good choice.
These plants are guaranteed to arrive alive and healthy or you
will receive a full refund.
For aquarium use the tile is typically fully
immersed, sitting quite well on the bottom. The tile can be pushed almost completely
into any sand or gravel but it would be wise not to cover the top of the tile
since this would eventually kill the moss strand tips that connect the moss
to the base of the tile.
For terrarium use we recommend the tiles sit
in no less than an inch of water. If you are interested in growing the moss
out of water it is best to start it submerged and then let it grow out. Java
moss that is grown submerged (like these tiles) and then suddenly brought to
the surface tend to dry out because the plant membranes have not yet adapted
to the new environment.
Java Moss General Description: Java moss is the
common name for Vesicularia dubyana, a hardy plant which makes few demands on
the water or light and will grow on just about any surface. It is ideal for
decorating stones and plant roots in your bowl. It can be anchored into position
using fishing line or just left free floating. If its growth becomes too excessive
as it usually will given enough time it can be broken up and spread to other
bowls and aquariums. Its an excellent hiding place for smaller fish and shrimp.
