Water Sprite Indian Fern

Water Sprite Indian Fern produces delicately looking leaves with a lace-like appearance. The leaves are light green with stems growing slightly darker green. The plant is versatile, easy to take care of, and a good beginner aquarium plant.

Care & Maintenance for Water Sprite Indian Fern

Water Sprite Indian Fern is highly adaptable and, under good conditions, a fast-growing plant. It will thrive under varied water conditions and light levels. The substrate is not too important as the plant is excellent at pulling the nutrients it needs from the water column. Water Sprite’s ability to pull copious amounts of nutrients from the water column helps keep the aquarium water clean and healthy for fish and other tank inhabitants.    

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate
  • Temperature Range: 70-82°F
  • Tank Placement: Background

Water Sprite can be either planted in substrate or left floating. If planting, the plant should be placed in the background areas of the aquarium and preferably away from powerheads or filter intakes so that its delicate leaves are not accidentally pulled in and shredded.  

Water Sprite Indian Fern is also available potted. "Disclaimer: Due to local restrictions this plant does not ship to California"

    This is one of my favorite plants in my discus tank. They've grown quite a bit already after arriving in great condition.

    The plant arrived healthy and in good condition. I have purchased all my aquarium live plants from Modern Aquarium and trust them to provide only the best plants in the best condition. I planted this plant 1 week ago and it is doing very well

    Love these!

    I used these to help hide my heater and filter, and they do the job! I realized immediately after planting them that I would love to get a dozen more. They're very tall, fun to look at, and sturdy; don't have leaves floating off like some plants do.

    These look very nice in my tank and everyone loves them. The snails like going up the stems and fish loves swimming through the leafy parts.

    I just kill stem plants. Water sprite gives me the look of a stem plant with the heartiness to survive my black thumb. I ordered the size large. The two plants I got look awesome in my 29 gallon. (I have one planted in the back and one floating.)
