I’ve noticed a, “baby plant?” on both of my java ferns, but I don’t know. It’s like a tiny Java Fern on the leaves of the big one.. and two out of two of my java ferns have one on one of their leaves. I’ll take some pictures, sorry for the brown spots on the Java Ferns also, that’s how I got them, and I had no say as to which plants I wanted from the tank in the store.

Usually it is old or injured leaves that produce the new plants. First bumps appear on the underside of a mother leaf, looking like there is something wrong with the plant. The bumps turn into tiny roots and leaves..

Oh, that’s wonderful! Five java ferns! (I just found a third baby plant!) I hope that all of them survive and grow bigger!
