    Just wanted to get some tips on how to plant it when creating a bunch on the end of the branch tip. I'm setting up a low light Anubias, Microsorum and bogwood tank and i want to create 3 or 4 nice "bunches" of Microsorum Pteropus on the end of a few branch tips around the tank. Just wanted to know peoples experiences with actually doing this.

    Do you tie on 1, 2, 3 maybe even 6 or 7 individual plantlets onto the section of wood to create the clump. Basically is a case of tieing on lots initially, or less and letting it grow into a big bunch. With the latter i can't help but think the rhyzome will get adventurous and wander down the wood.

    Any input would be appreciated, thanks. James

    I tried both ways, they will give same result. But starting with dense planting will avoid a waiting of 6 months to get your plant as dense as you expect it to be
