Watersprite - Ceratopteris sp.
Watersprite (Ceratopteris sp.) is also sometimes known as "Indian Water Fern" or Laceleaf Watersprite" due to the finely branched leaves it grows when submerged. The leaf shape changes when grown emerged (out of the water) and the emerged plant will also be stiffer than the delicate submerged form.
These individual stalks can be planted by inserting the end of the stalk into the substrate, either individually or in groupings of several stalks. They may grow roots in time. They can be easily pruned by trimming the stalk at the desired height. The trimmings can then be planted as well if desired. Watersprite do not need to be planted and may also be allowed to float on the water's surface. These plants make excellent cover for fry to hide.

whenmy plants arrived all the main stems were rotted between each leaf joint with roots at each joint that were not in best shape. has been a little over 2 weeks and only one joint is still alive....the rest all rotted away. the jungle vallisneria were in same shape with roots dead and plants dead in center . they are also already dead. my guppies are very healthy so not the water quality but poor condition of plants when arrived!! very disappointed
