Java fern help

I just received some Java fern I purchased online. It arrived in 3 separate plastic pots with some sort of packing material. I expected it would be 3 individual clumps that I could attach to some lava stone. Unfortunately each pot contains multiple individual strands.

How do I attach to something to anchor? Do I leave them in the plastic pots instead?

You could loosely tie the strands together and then attach the bundles to the rocks, or you could leave them in the pots of you prefer that look.

Perfect! I have no problems with then being in the pots as I will be using them as background plants. Just wanted to make sure it wasn't harmful!

Nope, they should be just fine! That being said I think I know the packing material you’re talking about and small pieces may flake off if it’s picked at too much but can be easily removed. Is it a beige, dense, fibrous sort of thing?

Yes that's exactly what it is.

Ok I know exactly what you’re talking about. I haven’t had any problems with it, but as your plants get bigger the roots may get a little big for the pots so just watch out for that
