    Hi
    So I been searching for Java moss for a while now and finally found it. There in the small tubs I dont known if I should get 1 for the 2 and 3 foot take each I've heard they grow fast and spread. Do think I should go with 1 each or more?
    Thanks

    Java moss grows slower than people think it does.
    Over time it grows, but nothing as fast as Hornwort or Cabomba.
    Even Susswassertang grows faster than Java Moss.

    If you start with a lot you'll get plenty more. Start with a little and it'll take some time, get as much as you can :)

    Strange how some people struggle with one thing, while others don't have issues with it.

    Java Fern grows slower than Anubias or plastic plants.
    Where do you want to use the plant?
    If you are looking for a bush you could use something like Cryptocoryne Wendtii Brown.
    It doesn't run away like some other stem plants, and stays reasonably small.
