TCulture Microsorum Pteropus Needle (Taiwan)
A very beautiful Java fern variant, ideal for the nature aquarium style.
Narrower then Microsorum pteropus "Narrow"
This fern has ribbon-shaped, about 20-40 cm long and 0.5-1.5 cm, at most 2 cm wide leaves. It is known in the hobby under various names, e.g. "Narrow" and "Needle leaf", but is different from the shorter Microsorum pteropus "Narrow" from Tropica and develops wider, longer leaves than the true "Needle leaf" Java fern.
Microsorum pteropus "Taiwan Narrow", also called M. pteropus "Taiwan", is as easy as broad-leaved regular Java fern. It is perfectly suitable as epiphyte on the hardscape but grows also well when it is fixed to the ground. It is easily propagated by cutting the rhizome as well as by adventitious plantlets appearing on older leaves.
