Like any other variant of Java Fern, it is equally easy to grow and maintain; thus, it is perfect for beginners. The plant is native to Southeast Asia and can be seen thriving in and around rivers, streams, and marshes. The ability of Java Fern 'wrinkled leaves' to flourish in different water conditions makes it perfect for all types of tanks. 

Appearance: As the name indicates, the 'wrinkled leaf' of Java Fern exhibits leaves with a distinct wrinkly appearance. This is one characteristic setting it apart from the other smooth and broad leaf species of Java Fern. The wrinkling of the leaves can vary in intensity, with some leaves displaying subtle creases while others may have more pronounced folds.

Hard/Soft Plant: Java Fern is one of the hardy species of aquarium plants that have the ability to tolerate a wide range of water parameters. It is the reason why the plant is considered suitable for both beginners as well as expert aquarists.

Other Requirements: Java Fern attaches to the substrate; therefore, you don't need to plant it.

Additionally, Java Fern benefits from regular water circulation to ensure nutrients reach its roots and leaves.

Propagation: Java Fern 'wrinkled leaves' can be propagated through adventitious plantlets that grow on the edges of mature leaves or along the rhizome. All you need is to detach the plantlets from the rhizome and attach them to a new substrate. Over time, the plantlet establishes itself and grows into mature plants.
