    Hi, I was wondering if you can put Java Fern in a clay pot. I know that you can't bury Java fern rhizome. But I was wondering if Java fern would grow if I put it in a pot with no gravel, soil, or any type of substrate. If anyone tried this and have success, please let me know. Thank you.

    It's not much different than placing it right onto the substrate, but why not.
    You can also tie or glue it down to a piece of driftwood.

    Ah thank you for your reply! I was just wondering if putting it in the pot would have the same effect as attaching it to driftwood or decoration.

    just use super glue( the gel type) and glue it to the pot.

    But will it grow floating in the pot with no super glue?

    As long as there’s no substrate in the pot you will be fine, you may need to add a plant weight or something similar to keep it in there. Also be sure to let a touch of light onto the rhizome. Keep in mind it grows from a rhizome... a sword is a nice shape for pots, however rhizome plants tend to grow in lines.. not always the best look for a pot.
