View Full Version : Plant ID. Type of moss?

02-11-2017, 09:25 AM
I ordered some aquatic plants and my supplier graciously included this in my shipment. Can anyone help me identify it please? It seems to be a kind of moss since its just a free floating bunch of green and has no roots. I've tried asking the supplier of course but they have not gotten back to me yet. Any insight would be appreciated. :)

I have not insight sorry. But it dose remind me of a type of sea lettus which we have of our coast in NZ.

Looks like the so-called freshwater seaweed, known scientifically as Lomariopsis lineata. It's actually a type of fern.

Cool, I've never seen that plant!

I thought it was Pellia, I like how it grows like a fern. Where is it native to? Do you plant it or treat it like java fern? Does it grow roots?

Asia to my knowledge.
It doesn't grow roots and isn't attached to things like java fern.
If you treat it like javafern and leave it they'll grow in nice "balls". https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170211/f128245688b3bbc53f34df15a0f706c5.jpg My albino Peppered use them as a bed.
