Received under the name of Bolbitis Sp. ĞMiniğ, but I doubt that it Bolbitis, grows in the aquarium for about a year.

Hi Vadim S,

It does look like a Bolbitus species but I have not seen it before. I do like the foliage and the lighter green color than the regular Bolibitus.

In my opinion that's not a Bolbitis but a "filmy fern" (family Hymenophyllaceae).
A similar, if not the same species is sold as "Lacosteopsis orientalis from Taiwan" here (further below): http://www.grassyaqua.com/pf_ai.html But the Hymenophyllaceae contain several similar genera (e.g. Trichomanes, Crepidomanes, Hymenophyllum) and many difficult to distinguish species. I think it's possible that several fern species are sold as "mini bolbitis".

Thank Heiko, just after viewing the "Grassy", I thought that this is not bolbitis. Thanks for the link, but there is described a different plant, compare the "stalk".
P.S. Plants on the photo 100% grown under water! I can say that this is a good aquarium plant and is growing faster Littorella.

Hey, that's good news!! First time that I read about successful submerged cultivation of a "mini Bolbitis"!
