Marsilea Hirsuta

Marsilea species are relatively undemanding and can be grown in moderate lighting with a regular fertilizing regimen. Higher lighting and carbon dioxide injection improve growth rate and promote more compact growth. The various Marsilea species are planted by taking one to two-inch sections of rhizome and planting them in the substrate at regular intervals. Propagation is straightforward, as new rhizomes and leaves form from the planted sections

Common Name:   Dwarf marsilea fern

Scientific Name:   Marsilea Hirsuta

Marsilea species are relatively undemanding and can be grown in moderate lighting with a regular fertilizing regimen. Higher lighting and carbon dioxide injection improve growth rate and promote more compact growth. The various Marsilea species are planted by taking one to two-inch sections of rhizome and planting them in the substrate at regular intervals. Propagation is straightforward, as new rhizomes and leaves form from the planted sections. There is often an extended adaptation period for submersed-grown stock, but once the plants are established, growth is steady. Any leaves on plants that have grown completely emersed or floating should be removed; new leaves of the latter formed after planting should be clipped. After a short time, no more will be produced. This group of plants has become quite popular as foreground cover in various types of aquascapes. Shaded areas or inadequate lighting promote the growth of taller and two, three or four-lobed leaves. These can be easily trimmed at the aquascaper’s discretion. Maintenance involves thinning out the mat of plants as they become too thick. This can be accomplished by carefully pulling up groups of runners and trimming. Alternatively, complete sections may be removed and then replanted. Creating a slope with the substrate prior to planting provides more sense of depth when using Marsilea species.
