Plant Description:

Flame Moss / Taxiphyllum sp. 'Flame' is part of the Hypnaceae family of aquatic mosses. They are native to shaded waterways throughout tropical areas in Asia. Due to its unique habitat in the wild, this plant can be grown successfully submerged in the aquarium, or emerged in a high humidity terrarium, paludarium, or vivarium. 

Flame Moss is unique in that is grows vertically rather than horizontally. This variety is adored, because of its upward spiraling growth pattern resembling flames, thus giving it's namesake. This moss tends to be used as a carpeting plant or attached rock or wood to soften up hardscape.

In the aquarium, Taxiphyllum sp. 'Flame', it is a relatively easy to care for plant that requires low to medium light and minimal fertilization or CO2 supplementation. Moss is ideal for small aquariums, nano aquariums, shrimp tanks, terrariums, and paludariums.

Although this plant may be a slow grower in the aquarium, with enough time and care it will begin to flourish and spread.
