Java Moss (Vesicularia Dubyana)

Vesicularia Dubyana, commonly known as Java Moss, originates from India.  It is an adaptable and versatile plant that can be used in various ways in your aquarium.  For example, Java Moss can be used as a foreground plant placed among the bases of large stem plants attached to rocks, wood or just left on its own.  The plant will attach to any surface and will spread in all directions.  Java Moss uses rhizoids to attach itself to surfaces l. ike rocks or driftwood. Since it has no roots that burrow themselves in gravel or substrate, Java Moss absorbs excess nutrients from the water column, contributing to a healthier environment for your tank inhabitants. It is a hardy plant and regular fertilization will increase its rate of growth.  Java Moss is ideal in aquariums housing breeding or small fish or fry.

Care Guide for Java Moss

Java Moss is one of the least demanding aquatic plants in the hobby. It does not have any special water quality requirements, will grow in low light conditions, and does not require fertilization. However, if provided with more intense light and some fertilization, Java Moss will grow faster. Java Moss can be used in cold water tanks.

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Low
  • Temperature Range: 59-86° F
  • Tank Placement: Foreground, Specimen

You can let your moss grow over the bottom of the tank, or you can tie it to wood or rocks using scaper's glue or cotton thread. Java Moss looks particularly attractive when tied to branches or rocks, giving the aquarium a natural look.

    I was warned that this was going to make a mess in my tank but I split it into three clumps in it has stayed where I put it. I am the most pleased with this plant.

    So much java moss

    Posted by john russo on 6 Aug 2021

    You get a LOT in a one-pound bag of Java Moss. Growing well. Biggest problem for me is where to put it. I have a 180 gal tank, and still not enough room.

    Java Moss

    Posted by Unknown on 1 Apr 2021

    The cup of moss I received was dried out and a lot of it was brown. But after adding it to my aquarium it seems to be coming back to life and turning green pretty quickly.

    Java Moss

    Posted by Leslie on 2 Mar 2021

    This is a very nice little bunch of moss, however trying to "tie" it on a log did not work out well. It has scattered around my tank and landed at the bottom of other plants as well as under some wood so hopefully it will take hold and spread!

    Best Java moss

    Posted by Sean Parvi on 1 Mar 2021

    Thick and healthy Java moss. The deep color added great depth and contrast to the other bright green plants. Buy this moss!

    Nice little bunches of green

    Posted by Rena Rouse on 20 Feb 2021

    I like this plant as you can put it in small places and crevasses on rocks and driftwood.
