Variety of Microsorum pteropus with strikingly beautiful long, slender
'hammered out' leaves. Microsorum pteropus ''Philippine'' grows readily
on roots and stones, but can also be planted directly on the bottom - but not
too deep. The plant is hardy and also suitable for larger aquariums. It is
tolerant of salt, and originated from the island of Panay in the Philippines,
where it grows right out in the tidal river mouth and thrives both below and
above water. See also Microsorum pteropus.
