Malayan Aqua Fern

This “Malayan Aqua Fern” is a very mysterious plant, there is very little information on Google about it.

There are two views on it, based on online writings.

First viewpoint on Malayan Aqua Fern:

The “Malayan Aqua Fern” is none other than Peacock Fern, or Selaginella willdenowii. It is NOT an aquatic plant, and will die if fully submerged under water. This is quite reasonable, based on the pictures of Peacock Fern online, it does look like the pictures of the “Malayan Aqua Fern”. Nonetheless, it can be planted in a crab/terrapin tank where it is not fully submerged under water.

The “Malayan Aqua Fern” may give the illusion of surviving under water when it may be slowly dying (takes around a month to die).

Second view:

The “Malayan Aqua Fern” is an amphibious plant, able to live both submerged or in moist conditions. If this is true, then “Malayan Aqua Fern” would be an incredible aquarium plant as it looks very good in a fish tank.
