PHOENIX MOSS (FISSIDENS FONTANUS)

Description

 Each portion 8x8 cm 

Phoenix Moss (Fissidens fontanus), is a North American aquatic moss that has recently been gaining popularity in the freshwater aquarium hobby.  This plant is a very fluffy, lush green plant that will attach to most surfaces and can eventually grow into a large mat of impressive size.  Like many similar plants, it provides refuge for shrimp and fish fry and makes for an attractive and useful grazing area for shrimp.  It can be easily attached to driftwood and rockwork.  It is slow-growing and requires low to moderate light.  Flame moss got its name from its form of growth. Tight, vertical growing and light undulating shoots give the impression of a deep green camp fire, 5-15cm high. The very special form makes Flame moss extremely suitable for horizontal surfaces and it only spreads slowly horizontally. A lovely result is achieved by binding the moss to small stones or in small bundles on tree roots.
