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.

Delighted with Bolbitus...

VERY generous portion of a seriously robust-looking plant. It is a beautiful green and the leaves (fronds?) & roots are much larger, fuller and more decorative than I expected. My first thought when I unpacked it was, has this thing actually been growing in the box on the way here?? It looks THAT good. If you'd like a good-sized, sturdy, fern-leafed plant you can feel confident you'll succeed in growing, Bolbitus belongs in your order! PS Check out the new growth in the image...

Healthy, snail free plants

Just started a new tank with this Bolbitus, some Riccardia moss, and Brownie Purple Bucephalandra.

Everything was tied down to driftwood or rocks and looks great so far. I purchased one quantity of each plant and as you can see from the images I received a decent amount! I even received extra rhizome sections of the Bolbitus and buce with no leaves yet but we'll see how they grow.

Thank you!
