Java Fern Question

Recommended Posts

So, I got this Java Fern from a Big Box PS on July 10. I didn’t start dosing Easy Green until July 16 but I’ve noticed this growing from a couple leaves recently. Will it eventually stop trying to reproduce now that it’s getting regular fertilizer? Should I remove the “planlets” or leave them? Am I doing something wrong? The Anubias, PSO, Water Sprite and Argentine Sword seem to be doing just fine.

Lovely! Looks like your J. fern is sprouting little ones. I like to remove them, and place in various tanks in my basement. I _think_ the excess amount of nitrate may be partly the cause.

Here's a video of me mumbling through a J. fern plantlet extraction...
