Water Sprite Lace Leaf Fern

Water Sprite Lace Leaf Fern grows long stems with intricate and delicate lace-like green leaves that will provide a unique and interesting visual effect in the aquarium. Water Sprite can be either planted in substrate or used as a floating plant. If planted, it looks best in groups and is used as a background plant. Water Sprite's stems and numerous leaves will provide shelter to smaller aquarium fish.    

Caring For Water Sprite Lace Leaf

Under good conditions, the plant will grow fast and quickly remove excess nutrients from the water column. It is a relatively easy plant to care for and grow. It does not require any special care or particularly strong lighting but, if provided with good light, substrate, and fertilization, the plant will grow fast.

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate
  • Temperature Range: 71-82°F
  • Tank Placement: Background or Floating

    Lace leaf fern

    Posted by Erin B on 11 Apr 2022

    Stunned! These two were so tall I had to move around my whole hardscape! And they are growing up over the rim already. I just can't bring myself to trim them yet. Super full, bright green and growing like weeds!

    Arrived quickly. Plants looked great on arrival. No evidence of snails or other hitchhikers. No die-off and within one month was already spreading throughout the tank, sending out new plantlets. This plant does have to be trimmed back periodically or it can really take over.

    Even with delated shipping & damaged leaves, this plant is THRIVING!

    Posted by Nicole on 21 Jan 2022

    Ordered this Water Sprite with a few other plants, and although some of the leaves sustained some cold damage due to delayed shipping, it arrived with very healthy roots and stems. I've had it in my tanks for a week, and it growing like crazy! New roots and new leaves! Very pleased, would recommend/buy again.

    Modern aquarium always has the best quality of this plant. Tall with roots, and no wilting or melting.
