Mini Pellia moss

Notify me when this product is available:

Riccardia chamedryfolia is a species of liverwort (common name: Mini Pellia or Coral Moss due to its growth similarity to coral when submerged underwater) is a terrestrial plant which has been widely adapted by aquarist as an ornamental plant for the freshwater planted aquarium hobby around the world.

sold as 5 cent size clump

Coral Moss (Riccardia chamedryfolia), also known as Mini Pellia, is a rare liverwort from Southeast Asia.  This plant is a beautiful deep green that fares better in slightly higher lighting than many moss-like plants in the freshwater aquarium.  Like many similar plants, it provides refuge for shrimp and fish fry and makes for an attractive and useful grazing area for shrimp.  Coral Moss can easily be attached to driftwood and rockwork.  It is slow-growing and requires low to moderate light and, with patience and care, will grow into an expansive, lush mat.  With high humidity, it will even grow in a terrestrial environment!

This is a very easy plant to keep without much extra care, but like all plants, it can benefit from CO2 supplementation, although this is not required.  Like many mosses, it does not typically respond positively to most chemical plant supplements.  Many aquarists report success with this moss purely through keeping a well-maintained aquarium with no supplementation.
