This form of Microsorum pteropus was found in the Western Ghats in Southwest India. There it colonizes shady places in the spray-water zone of streams and cascades.
In its submerged form, 'Green Gnome' is a compact, small plant with a maximum height of about 15 cm. The emersed plant grows a little taller. This Java fern variant is also very attractive by its slightly bullate leaf structure with accentuated venation, resembling Microsorum pteropus 'Philippine'.
This compact, small, slowly growing fern is perfectly suitable as epiphyte for Micro aquariums and aquascapes.
