 good  water  source  with  rich  minerals  should  do  the  job..  for  carbon  source  you  can  try  seachem  products  .
 i  suggest  you  to  use  a  better  lighting  source....

 Water  movement  is  not  a  big  factor  for  ferns  or  mosses  pranav!
 
 Java  fern  is  basically  a  slow  grower  !
 
 java  moss  is  not  like  that  with  good  conditions  around  it  will  flourish!  wait  for  2  more  months  ....  with  winter  turning  around  you  can  expect  them  to  grow  fast!

 hey  check  with  macro  and  micro  nutrients  i  think  the  temperature  is  little  bit  high  for  them.Do  some  partial  water  change  once  in  three  days  provide  some  co2  .There  is  no  issues  with  lighting  i  guess(provide  some  10-12  hours  of  light).and  if  u  do  this  u  should  be  able  to  see  some  nodes  in  a  span  of  10  days  or  so.there  should  be  a  steady  medium  movement  of  water  in  order  to  grow  them  fast.

 lowering  the  temperature  to  around  24  degrees  and  increasing  co2  level  will  help  in  accelerating  the  growth  of  java  moss,  java  fer  is  relatively  slow  grower  and  the  only  thing  that  i  have  found  helpful  with  them  is  removing  old  and  dying  leaves  will  hasten  newer   growth.

 Hey  guys  what  are  your  views  on  needle  leaf  java  fern  ??  When  i  introduced  them  i  saw  1  new  leaf  every  other  day  but  now  that  growth  have  slowed  down  to  1  leaf  every  6-7  days  may  b  more....  
 
 And  few  day  the  java  moss  showed  good  growth  and  now  the  moss  is  also  not  flourishing.......  The  peelia  in  my  tank  is  the  same  from  day  one  since  2  months.....  It  never  flourished  nor  any  sign  of  growth......  
 
 I  do  80%  water  change  everyday  and  11  W  light  for  7  gallon  of  water.....  Photo  period  around  6  hours.....

 @Satish  I  think  you  have  not  seen  java  moss  thriving  in  22  deg  cent.
 youll  not  recognise  it  in  such  a  set  up
 java  and  christmas  moss  even  grow  at  30  deg   Very Happy  but  there  is  a  difference   Smile

 Hi  
 
 i  am  from  chennai  .  I  am  able  to  grow  java  moss/  taiwan  moss  and  christmass  moss  very  well   .  i  have  only  diy  CO2  .  I  use  cooling  fans  to  reduce  the  temperate   .  during  summer  tank  temp  reaches  29  -30  c  and  during  other  months  it  hovers  around  26  to  28  c.  you  can  also  follow  the  stuff  below
 1.  keep  the  aquarium  in  place  where  it  is  relatively  cool
 2.   have  cooling  fans  to  reduce  temperature
 3.  use  some  method  of  CO2  injection  either  DIY  or  pressurized  (  without  co2  no  hope)
 4.  Have  a  good  filter
