As of 9-12-19 these plants have been grown ABOVE water. (They might melt back) higher lights and ferts reduces this...while it might melt back it won’t die - it’s almost unkillable ;)
Bolbitus heudelotii also know as African water fern. Who wants a mega hardy fern that can tolerate almost any conditions?

You can thank our late friend, the botanical explorer of West Africa Jean-Pierre Heudelot. Our man Jean-Pierre found this cool plant and gave it the heudelotii name. These plants are coming to you DIRECTLY from Africa to Dustin's tanks and on to yours.

Yep. These are the perfect plants for me to import and for you to keep in your aquarium... why?

First- they can handle the abuse of cichlids with their hardy, thick leaves.

Second- They can adapt to almost any tank conditions. I have always kept them in slightly harder water but I hear they can take softer water as well. Like other ferns such as Java Fern, or its smaller cousin, Baby Bolbitus...

Bolbitus likes to be tied to something. Think of it like you would Anubias. Tie it to a nice rock or driftwood. The one slight drawback to Bolbitus is that it isn't the fastest growing plant.

Because of it's slightly slower growth habit- I've always kept Bolbitus in a bit more water flow, which it seems to like and keeps algae off of it.

Grab a cool piece of driftwood, some super glue or wire and make yourself some Bolbitus trees for your tank.

DON'T MISS THIS PLANT. It's made for Any Skill Level.

It's not dead

This was a BOGO deal so I took advantage. While the ferns sent out were huge, they just did not fair well with shipping to AZ in September. Most were already melted back and wilted upon arrival. I did get 6 -7 individual rhizomes on the ferns, so stoked about that. I simply trimmed everything down to the rhizome leaving just the roots, tied them all down to some spider-wood and played the waiting game. Almost two months later and i have ferns popping up everywhere. Yeah growth is somewhat slow, but it will come's not dead.
Can't wait for them to take off.

Wow! Big, beautiful, & lush

Plants arrived quickly and were nicely packaged. The quality and quantity was great! They plants were clean, didn’t smell like rot or mud, and I didn’t find any hitchhikers on them. I will not hesitate to buy from Dustin again!

Looks Great!

Plants arrived healthy and looking great. Shipping was very fast. I highly recommend Dustin's plants.

Exceed Expectations

The plant was much larger than expected. The plant came in looking really well and shipping was fast. I would highly recommend purchasing from Dustin.

Shipped the day I ordered

Quick shipping! Was sent out the day I ordered it. Box was smashed and torn during shipping but plants came in looking great! Lost a stem but is expected and had lots more that were in great shape. Got hooked up with plenty of rhyzome to cover the entirety of my big piece of driftwood. If you're ordering this plant, Dustins the guy to get it from. :)
