Christmas Moss 

Christmas Moss (scientific name: Vesicularia Montagnei) is an excellent choice for most of the intended aquascaping tanks. The plant has round/ oval-shaped leaves in rich, dark green that grow shorter toward the top of the stem. Each stem then hangs down and overlaps the other forming the shape of a Christmas tree which explains why it can easily earn this name.

As Christmas Moss grows horizontally and densely, it displays a lush green that calms and pleases your mind whenever you look at it. Not only that, the plant also benefits your fish community by creating a perfect cover for baby fish or fish eggs. 

Christmas Moss is easy to care for. They have shallow roots therefore, they mainly absorb nutrients through water columns. In theory, the plant does not need liquid fertilizer and CO2 supplements. However, since it requires moderate to high lighting conditions to grow strongly and robustly (Christmas Moss can live under a low lighting system but it will grow very slowly), such addition is sometimes indispensable. Christmas Moss can grow on any type of substrate, or thrive even left floating. Considering its small size (1-4 inches), they are best placed in the foreground of aquariums. Either attach them to hardscapes (using fishing line or specialized glue) or bury them into substrate are both accepted. If you feel bored with that option, you can put it in the back of your aquarium to build a beautiful green wall. Simply attach them to mersh materials and let them self-established in the desired location, they soon form a thick carpet and cover up all the back of your tank with their vivid green.  

Christmas Moss thrive when they settle completely immersed in water. Soft water with a pH level range between 5 and 7.5 are their favorite living conditions, while the preferable temperature range for them to thrive is usually around 65° - 77°F.

If there is something that bothers your plant, it is highly likely algae, a very common problem with every moss. To avoid this irritation, your tank needs a good flow circulation and performing regular water changes.
