I bought a small java fern about six weeks ago. It turned out there was two stuck together in the package! They, along with an anubias, wisteria, and anacharis, were my very first living plants. I tied one onto a lava rock in a 5 gallon betta tank. The other I was not prepared for, as I thought there would only be one, but I tied it to a large river rock in my other 5 gallon betta tank. I was wary of them because I thought they were just leaves tied together at the bottom. I expected them to maybe purify the water for a few weeks, and then die. To my surprise, six weeks later there are six new leaves sprouting from one and four on the other. I have been adding Aqueon Plant Food once a week, and their leaves are full and green. There and my anubias are my favorite aquarium plants. Plus, they are extremely hardy. Algae is growing all over one and it's not doing a thing. Highly recommend for people beginning with plants!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CaveFish Very Hardy; An Excellent Plant!
I purchased a Windolev and Narrow Leaf Java Fern a couple months back.
Overall, they're great! My Windolev has remained smaller since I have acquired it, but it still remains and is growing slowly, but surely. My Narrow Leaf has nearly doubled in size! It began sprouting new leaves very quickly, and it became a very full and healthy plant. Both have had their bouts of slight brown spots/leaves, but they come and go, and are always very small.
Very hardy plants, definitely a worthwhile investment. These were my first aquatic plants as a beginner, and I would recommend nothing else.

by Fisharethegreatest WOW!!
I bought just one tiny plant from PetSmart a year ago. Now, I have one huge plant and about five tiny plants. They thrive under the normal lighting that comes with most aquarium hoods. I have two in a 2.5g betta tank and three in my 20g planted tank. They look beautiful! :) Also, it's extremely durable and will survive in any water condition. If you have a (very humid) terrarium you can plant one of these on land.
Goldfish never eat it. EVER. I used to have one of these in a 10g goldfish tank and the goldfish didn't touch it. He did eat the anacharis though. :(
PLUS: It didn't have any snails on it! (But I wouldn't care if it did. My loaches would eat them all!)
I'd have to give this plant five stars. If I didn't, I'd be crazy.

This was the first live plant I bought for my small aquarium and bowl. I was able to cut it in 1/2 and divide it between the two habitats.
It was very easy to plant. I just covered the "roots" with a pond rock. My betta loves to swim around it, the mystery snails like to climb along it (and haven't eaten it), and the ghost shrimp like to hang out at its base and on their leaves.
Very easy to take care of!
