Flame is a unique moss as it grows vertically upwards and twists as it grows, creating a flame-like appearance. This plant is best tied on rocks or driftwoods and after a while it will attach itself to the rock or driftwood. Flame moss, however, takes a longer time to attach itself to rocks and driftwoods compared to any other moss from what we have seen.
For optimal growth, flame moss should be kept in cooler waters, with 24° Celsius being the best temperature. With higher CO2 levels and brighter lighting, flame moss will grow at a faster pace. Water parameters are not of much importance, as long as the extremes are avoided.

*Please note that all our plants have been grown submerged and are gathered from our own tanks. Follow all regular procedures of adding plants to a established tank or new setup. As these are from established tanks please make sure that you clean plants properly before adding. We will give a salt and peroxide dip before they go.
