View Full Version : Whats on my Java Fern

There are these weird looking brown things on my Java fern and I have no idea what they are. They haven't spread or moved or done anything really, but I am still curious as to what they are. Any ideas?

Itís starting new sprouts. Mine looks like that every time it starts to sprout new shoots. Very soon you will see a little leaf or two starting to grow there. After time, the new sprout will separate from the plant. I will usually collect these little sprout and tie then to drift wood.

Okay sweet I've been wondering what those were, how do you tie them to driftwood? I've heard that around the forum but I have trouble picturing the technique.

Use piace of cotton thread or fishing line and tie the little plant to a piece of wood.
