Scientific Name: Bolbitis  Heudelotii

Care Level: Easy

Temperature Range: 68° - 82°

Description: Hardy tall creeping fern

Also known as the African Fern. It does best attached to rock or wood like Anubias. Bolbitis does well with African cichlids in our experience and also looks great in a community tank. I've also found it to be hardy against goldfish as well.

Great plant as always

Never have been disappointed by plant orders from the co-op; always great. The bolbitis I received was HUGE. They rhizome is very healthy and I have every confidence that after it recovers from its "melt" and move it will be a great addition to my tank.

Not doing too well

I don't really have any experience with bolbitis. The packaging is always top notch and it arrived in very good condition. None of the plants I ever order from the Aquarium Co-op ever seem the worse for wear after their trip, wish I could say the same for other YouTube plant sellers. It did seem to be a bit on the small side as i was expecting
a bit more for the price. It is a more expensive plant.

I am a bit disappointed as it is not doing too well. All but a few of the fronds melted away. I have not given up hope yet as it is still alive. All the other plants I ordered are doing fantastic. I hope it comes around.


The Bolbitis Heudelotii that I received is a nice size, bushy and green. It is a great addition to my aquarium. I can give the plants from Aquarium Co-op a 5 star rating without hesitation!
