Hookeriaceae Moss

Starter size portion and Mounted portions available.

Hookeriaceae or “Hooker” moss is a rare, intermediate care moss that does well in most aquarium conditions. Hookeriaceae is a larger-fronded moss that has a distinct shape similar to D. Maibarae and Jade Lotus, but a darker-colored stems and rounded leaves. Hooker may be the most recognizable and impressive aquarium moss once it is established and grown in.

Our Hookeriaceae moss is grown submerged in low-tech shrimp tanks. Only super-healthy, bright green cuttings will be harvested and shipped directly to customers.

Typical portions will be several large stems (roughly 20 fronds), which will be more than enough to start propagating your own beautiful piece. We do not sell large clumps or pre-made containers of moss because these typically do not adapt as well to new tank parameters. Keep in minds that this is a fragile moss and some stems may break in shipping. We will try to support it as best we can when packing.

How to grow: We recommend you cut your new moss up into small ½” to ¾” pieces and tie or glue it to whatever surface you would like to attach it to. Each new end will continue to grow and eventually produce a lush, full, beautiful plant. Alternatively, the purchased pieces can be left as-is and each cut end will branch out.

A mounted portion of Hookeriaceae will be attached to a hand-cut section of natural coconut shell and marked with a 3d-printed identification tag. Most moss will be grown out for several months and solidly rooted into the coconut shell. These not only make it easier for the moss to transition, but also allow you to simply place the moss into your aquarium minimal effort.

Disclaimer: All plants or moss may contain baby shrimp or snails.
