Weeping Moss (Vesicularia ferriei) is a popular type of aquarium moss known for its distinctive creep-down growth pattern. Unlike other plants, Weeping Moss does not root in the substrate but attaches to surfaces like driftwood or rocks using rhizoids. These rhizoids anchor the moss naturally without absorbing nutrients, which are instead taken from the water column.

Key Features:

  • Growth Habit: Weeping Moss has a unique, cascading growth that creates a beautiful, weeping effect in aquariums.
  • Attachment: Easily attach to driftwood, rocks, or other objects in the tank, where it will naturally adhere over time.

Aquarium Benefits:

  • Natural Aesthetic: Enhances the visual appeal of aquariums with its lush, green, cascading branches.
  • Habitat Creation: Provides excellent hiding and breeding spots for fish and shrimp, contributing to a healthy aquarium ecosystem.

Native Environment:

  • Weeping Moss thrives on wet rocks, riverbanks, and moist soil along streams in its natural habitat.

Care Tips:

  • Nutrient Absorption: Relies on the water column for nutrients, so ensure a well-maintained water quality.
  • Light and CO2: Moderate lighting and CO2 supplementation can enhance growth and vitality.

Conclusion: Weeping Moss (Vesicularia ferriei) is an excellent choice for aquarists looking to add a touch of natural beauty to their tanks. Its weeping growth pattern and ease of attachment make it a standout addition to any aquascape. Perfect for creating lush, green environments, Weeping Moss not only beautifies your aquarium but also provides essential habitats for aquatic life.

  • Sold as a small loose portion, approx. 2" x 2" in size
  • Perfect to attached to driftwood, rock, or stone

            Shipped Well

            Arrived looking healthy.

            Matthew Chicoine

            Very pleased with the quality, a very nice deep green color and packaged well

            Good Quality, Less Than I Expected

            The weeping moss arrived a day earlier than expected and is great quality; however, it is less than I expected to receive. The photos on the page are not what you will get and the page states a 3" culture, but it was more like 1.5" to 2". It looks great on my bonsai though and will grow in quickly.

            Fast, Reliable, and Beautiful!

            I previously ordered weeping moss from APF and found that I’ll need quite a bit more for my project. I ordered more and it arrived very quickly and it was a fresh and luscious as the first time. I have never ordered live plants before, but I can tell that you guys really care about what you do. I’ll be returning for my future needs
