 Hi,
 
 I  was  given  3-4  small  Java  fern  rhizomes  by  a  fellow  hobbyist  which  I  have  tied  to  driftwood  with  the  help  of  fishing  line.  All  of  them  had  a  couple  of  leaves  attached  to  them  when  I  got  them.  I  have  them  for  more  than  8-9  months  now.  Numerous  plantlets  have  sprouted  from  these  old  leaves  and  even  the  rhizomes  have  grown  but  not  even  a  single  new  leaf  has  come  out  since  I  have  these  ferns.  2  rhizomes  have  been  placed  in  such  a  way  that  water  constantly  flows  over  them  and  the  other  2  are  placed  in  such  a  way  that  they  are  not  under  direct  light.
 I  am  providing  about  2  WPG  to  the  plants.  Photo  period  is  about  6-8  hours  per  day.
 I  have  started  dosing  Macros  and  Micros  about  2-3  months  ago  
 I  am  not  supplying  any  CO2.
 
 Can  any  of  you  please  let  me  know  what  I  could  be  doing  wrong?
 
 Thanks,
 Amit

 @Sripad,  the  plants  are  from  his  plant  and  were  not  grown  emersed.  I  dont  think  the  co2  was  high.  
 
 @Salil,  I  have  tied  them  just  to  make  them  stay  on  the  driftwood..not  tight  at  all.  There  are  no  roots  on  the  rhizomes.   Sad

 Trim  old  leaves  to  get  new  leaves  to  grow.  Excel  or  co2  with  nutrients  will  give  faster  growth.

 1.  Trim  old  leaves  (do  not  trim  all  of  it  but  trim  80%  of  the  older  and  bad  looking  leaves).  the  energy  to  sustain  the  leaves  will  go  to  strengthening  the  rhizome  and  producing  new  leaves.
 2.  Direct  the  water  flow  towards  the  rhizome  or  atleast  keep  them  where  there  is  water  flow.
 3.  CO2  injection  is  neccesary  along  with  the  dosing  ferts.

 Wish  i  had  that  needle  java  fern  that  does  well  when  the  'normal'  java  fern  does  not...  Smile  Can  we  exchange  it  for  something  that  you  might  want?  
 
 In  my  water,  no  java  fern  does  well  without  CO2,  if  this  neelde  java  fern  works,  i  will  be  so  happy.
