Description: Adopting the feather-like appearance of other Fissidens species, this variant is much slower growing and less common. This could be the slowest growing moss we have grown thus far, making it more susceptible to algae compared to most mosses. However, once it is well established and algae-free it is very appealing. Each frond is much thicker and a darker green compared to standard US Fissidens. When grown under higher lighting and Co2 it appears to gain a glossy characteristic.
Difficulty: As with all aquarium plants, Co2 injection and appropriate fertilisation are recommended for optimal health and growth. Miroshaki will grow in a low-tech aquarium but at a slow rate. The addition of Co2 certainly results in more vibrant and robust growth.
