Default Growing a Java fern

Hi I’m new to planted tanks. I have a java fern and I don’t know what to do with it. It’s growing new leaves from the seeds pods on the leaf.

Welcome to APC! Java Ferns are not very hard to grow. Yours seems to be attached to a piece of wood, which is the right way to do it. Now, you need water that isn't too cold, and which has enough nutrients in the water to meet the needs of the plant. If you have low light, which works best, you can dose with Seachem Flourish, and feed the fish a bit more than they need, and you should have all the plant needs to grow.

Your betta is beautiful, those little roots on the ends will eventually turn into new plants if / when they have a chance to anchor to something, must be pretty happy. Id recommend an Anubias as well they wont grow too quick and could add some different foliage for the fishy. Love to see some more pics.
