    So I have some java fern in my 10 gallon tank and I’m no expert in taking care of them, they seem to be doing fine and they’re “reproducing” but there’s a ton of brown spots all of my plants.. I’ll put a pic below Image1523643916.631323.jpg

    the brown spots are repoductive spores. think of them like ferns. eventually you will have plantlets sprouting from these spots on the leaves.

    I have a similar thing on my java ferns. Almost all the leaves died off when I first brought it home. Now only the older leave still show the brown spots and I assume they're dying and just trim them off. Not sure if this is the case for you, but I assumed mine to be old leaves dying.

    Edit: and apparently I was ninja'd and am wrong lol. Nevermind me.

    That’s good, so then in theory there’s nothing to worry about right?

    Well I have java fern in my 3 gallon as well and they did turn brown when reproducing but not to this extent so I didn’t want to do anything drastic, ya know?

    That's a nice tree right there.

    I understand that. I didn't realize they browned when reproducing, that's very interesting. Anyone know why?

    And I think the only thing to worry about would be what to do with the new plants

    Thank you! Yeah when I saw it online I thought it would great in a little 10 gallon. It’s driftwood that was carved in to the shape of a tree. If you have bigger tanks they make them in larger sizes. I snagged it for $52 & Free Shipping

    evolution is my best answer. as for the plantlets, i leave them on till they are about 3 inches, that way they are easier to work with.

    That's a great idea!
    I just put a big piece of driftwood in my tank and attached anubias nana and java moss to it.

    Lol talk about reproducing and not knowing what to do with the new ones, also say hello to Peach my CrownTail (it’s a girl)

    I bet that looks sick, yeah if you’re ever interested the website I bought it from has TONS of driftwood. It’s called ‘Bonsai Driftwood’ you’ll see it pop up on a google search
