Current stock: 0

Aquarium plant from tissue culture in closed cup. Vesicularia ferriei 'Weeping', commonly known as Weeping Moss, is believed to originate from China and has been distributed by Oriental Aquarium Plants. 'Weeping' is a fleshy, 1-3 cm tall hanging moss with teardrop-like bright green shoots. It is best attached to driftwood or roots, as its drooping growth pattern helps to create depth and contrast in the aquarium. 'Weeping' has low demands, is fast growing and should be pruned frequently with scissors to maintain an attractive shape.

Excellent health and endless possibilities!

They arrived in wonderful condition. I have a few floating pumice rocks. I used very, very fine fishing line and awkwardly attached and 'tied' the moss to the pumice and weighed it down with a heavier stone , so that it hangs about, in the middle. It's slow to grow, but is greening up. It looks a bit embarrassing at the moment, but is greening up. I also have a bonsai driftwood 'tree' that I just stuck pieces in here and there and very slowly lowered into a dormant 10g. Lots of juicy stuff in the water and the filter isn't running, so hopefully, the pieces will stay in place and eventually attach and grow. Objective being to then move it to the 75 g. I want a 'weeping willow' in my 75 gallon! We can but try!!!! Thanks Greenleaf!

arrived in beautiful condition

Arrived timely. Nice, healthy growth. All died within 48h of being submerged (other mosses, ferns, all plants in the same tank thriving, and I work with TC plants for a living so I'm familiar with handling and care there of). Not the first weeping moss I've had do this. Will be sticking with Christmas moss for this scape I guess. But it did arrive beautiful and healthy.
