Commonly referred to as Christmas Tree Moss - Vesicularia montagnei by Tropica is a medium level care plant for planted aquariums.

Tropica Vesicularia montagnei 1-2-3 Grow Plant

A moss speciality from Brazil, 1-3 cm tall, called "Christmas tree moss'', because of its side branch structure which distinguishes it from ordinary Vesicularia montagnei and looks like fir tree branches.

It is more demanding than ordinary Java moss and grows more slowly. It attaches readily to roots and stones, and as it spreads in the water it needs pruning to keep its shape attractive.

See also Taxiphyllum barbieri.
