Bolbitis heudelotii

Bolbitis heudelotii (family Lomariopsidaceae) is another aquatic fern from West Africa. This beautiful plant is very sought after and rightfully so as it does very well in the aquarium. Bolbitis heudelotii grown submersed develops dark green almost see through leaves and the plants attach to rocks and drift wood easily and seems to do best when grown like this. CO2 helps a lot in the development of this plant and small bubbles can be seen developing on the leaves as the plants photosynthesize. Grown emersed the plants form spores on the undersides of the leaves in the summer months, but I have had little luck with the propagation of these
