Rainbow Moss Selaginella uncinata


Active member
Has anyone had any luck with Rainbow fern/moss in aquariums? During the pandemic my wife has been afflicted with her own MTS, but it involves house plants. Last week she brought home a beautiful Rainbow moss and I immediately wondered if I could start some in one of my tanks. I see it on some of the aquarium plant sites but does it have different emerged and submerged growth. Do I need to plant is or can I treat it like Java moss and let it bounce around the tank until it finds a spot is likes. Any thoughts?
