A water fern with very beautiful transparent green leaves. When planting do
not cover the rhizome because it will rot, and it is best to plant Bolbitis
heudelotii on a root or stone. Keep the plant in position with fishing line
until it has gained a hold. Easy to propagate by splitting the horizontal
rhizome. Growth can be increased considerably by supplying CO2, and
is only optimal in soft, slightly acidic water.
