Ceratopteris is the only genus among homosporous ferns that is exclusively aquatic. It is pan-tropical and classified in the Ceratopteridoideae subfamily of the Pteridaceae.

Common name: water fern
Color: Green
Bloom time: Non-flowering
Height: 0.75 to 1.50 feet
Difficulty level: easy to grow

Planting & Care
While it grows best planted in the substrate, water sprite can also grow as a floating plant. Numerous offshoots will often break off the mother plant and create floating plants, which will grow into dense floating mats, and create a perfect refuge for newborn fry.

Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade.

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Wet

Temprature: 68–86 °F

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • Water sprite will grow like a weed under the right conditions, and thankfully the right conditions are easy to achieve.
  • All that you have to provide is the proper lighting and nutrients and it will thrive in an aquarium.
  • In fact, it grows so quickly that it can completely overrun an aquarium, and will even begin to extend shoots out of the water, which gives it a unique look in an uncovered aquarium.


Special Feature:
Water gardens or ponds.
Use
Ornamental use:
  • The plant is used for ornamental purpose.


Note:
No serious insect or disease problems.
