Sweets I have a nice Java mat in my 75 gal and it is buried in the substrate! I used to have it on my DW but the bigger leaves would die off and I was left with a bunch of little ones. So what I did was took all the small ones and stitched them onto a plastic needle point pad. Placed it in the substrate and left it alone. A few months later I had the best Java fern mat that I have ever had! It is huge, green, and healthy. The big leaves are perfect and little ones now produce off the sides as opposed to the underside of the bigger leaves.
