Willow Moss is a beautiful branchy moss that forms new leaves from its wooden-looking branches. It is great for midground or attached to wood or rocks. It can have a very lush look and it provides small fishes and shrimps a safe natural shelther.
Over a period of more than one year growing Willow Moss, we realised the main understated key to growing healthy Willow Moss is very good water flow. Our Willow Moss grew the most beautiful and lushest when our filter outlet was positioned to optimise water flow through the Willow Moss.
This moss does not appreciate warm water. During summer when our aquariums went around or above 30°C during the day, our Willow Moss had a very thin appearance and growth rate dropped 25-50%. Willow Moss has 3 easy signs which you can observe when aquarium conditions are non-favourable. In the case of summer heat for example, the first observation noticeable is the sudden drop in growth rate. There would be much less new growing tips. In the next few weeks after, it would start to have a thinner appearance. If aquariums are even more unfavourable, for example in a case of summer heat plus very low lighting, then yellowing of foliage is a common observation as well.
