Hello everyone! The 2nd installment of my Shizuoka collecting trip is up on my blog AquaBiota! Here is an excerpt of what you'll find there, for the rest click on the link below! Thank you for taking the time to check out this post ☺ Enjoy!

Going into this trip, I was after one specific plant, and it was this fern. I like it for two reasons, it takes to water somewhat easily, and is easy to grow. The leaves are translucent-green, like Bolbitis, the largest fronds (emersed) grow to about 5-6 inches from tip to base of the leaf. If this fern is immersed, the fronds only get to about 3 inches long. The look of the leaf doesn't change when grown under water, it just shrinks quite a bit. It is also a very slow grower, maybe 1 leaf or 2 (if you are lucky) per month. That growth rate goes for whether it is grown in or out of water.
