Anubias Vesicularia Montagnei "Christmas Moss" CUP
Christmas tree moss
The very easy to maintain water moss Vesicularia montagnei comes from Asia. Christmas moss is only 2 to approx. 5 cm high and is perfect on roots and stones in the foreground and middle ground and tolerates soft to hard water.
The Christmas moss Vesicularia montagnei from Asia is so named because its shape reminds of the branches of fir trees: the medium-green, relatively coarse fronds are quite clearly triangular. The aquarium moss grows relatively slowly and makes nice cushions on the hardscape or on flat stones in the foreground.
Christmas moss is great as a ground cover in the foreground. If you don't want the moss to run loose in the aquarium, you can tie it up on flat stones. You then have to cut back the cushions regularly to allow them to grow very densely.
You can also bind the moss on roots or rocks in the aquarium. There it forms a great covering and looks very rustic. Also great: Christmas moss on an aquarium tree gives the picture of a beautiful green tree top. Vesicularia montagnei forms sticky roots and grows on the surface.
Vesicularia montagnei is a robust and frugal moss and fits in most aquarium setups. CO2 is not needed, and it grows properly even under poor lighting. Strong light and CO2 are of course no problem either.
You can easily multiply water moss by dividing them. You can pluck them apart with your fingers, you don't even need scissors.
The Christmas moss in the sterile cup was grown in the laboratory and is therefore completely safe to plant in the aquarium. It does not bring any inhabitants such as snails or other pests, there are no bacteria, algae spores or fungi on board, and since the moss is raised completely without the use of pesticides, you can use it directly in the aquarium - even in shrimp tanks.
You can also buy the Christmas moss tied directly to a root in length S from Olibetta. This size has a length of 20-25 cm.
Our expert Oliver Knott recommends:
Unravelling Christmas moss is very time-consuming. The best way to get the moss is to cut it into short pieces and then wrap it on root branches or stones with nylon thread. If this is too time-consuming for you, simply take the gel adhesive ProHaru Rapid from JBL and stick the pieces with it.
