Cute little plant!

I ordered 3 of these for my new frog tanks. 2 arrived in the usual excellent condition I have come to expect from Josh's Frogs. One was pretty sad looking. Not sure what happened there. I put it in my empty tank and expect it should come back to beauty in time. Overall very cute little ferns.

White Rabbit

Love both the Black and White Rabbit ferns. Slightly slower growing than the Black Rabbit but could be due to location in the viv. The greens really pop on both of these.

Excellent fern

Very good packaging,dark green and delicate yet easy to plant vivarium plant,the rhizomes ( "rabbit feet") were easy to find and thus were able to be held up while the roots were planted,looks very foresty in the vivarium,an excellent pick for a miniature jungle.
