    Hookeriaceae Moss

    Fairily rare, unique and beautiful aquarium moss which grows upward like a stem plant. Also known as "Hooker Moss". This is a slower growing moss, so less trimming involved. The fronds do branch out, creating a nice, lush carpet as it grows in. Upward growing moss such as Hookeriaceae is great for raising shrimp and fry, as it provides cover and surface area.

    Hookeriaceae is a very sensitive moss. Keep your temperature below 74°F and pH should be 7.4 or lower for best results. Mature, stable tanks are required for hookeriaceae and other sensitive mosses. 

    The Hookeriaceae Moss will be sent to you, sealed in a bag fully in-tact. You will also receive a 1x2" Plant Flat to attach your moss to. In our experience, this method has the highest success rates when shipping pickier mosses. We suggest chopping the moss up before tying to the flat, as this will promote a lush growth. May take a couple weeks to fully acclimate to your aquarium and begin growth.

    Sadly all melted in 4 days

    It looks ok at the first day but turned to yellow in 12 hours. Turned all white with brown stem in 48 hours. Contacted seller for help and was told they would adapt the water parameter soon. Sadly, moss broken down when I touch it today. Ordered another one will try again.

    Hi Dathan, I am sorry you had that experience with the Hookeriaceae moss! As stated in our email communication, I think the problem you are experiencing is with your high water temps, as you said you can't keep your water below 76°. In the product listing, it's mentioned that keeping your water temps low is important for this very sensitive moss. I hope the new one is able to adapt to the warmer water in your tank, but it gets harder to keep moss as the temperature increases!

    Perfect

    Waited a couple weeks to see how it acclimated to my Crystal Red tank. Everything is exactly as described, Arrived perfect. Growth can already be seen starting to shoot up from the plant flat. Will look forward to future orders!

    Color me Impressed!

    I was a little concerned when I initially placed my order. This was the first time ordering from LUCKY and the temperatures have been dropping here in Minnesota...I mean, it is December. As I opened the box I could not believe the care that was taken, the attention to detail was awesome! Plants were perfectly packed inside. Whomever tied the moss to the ledge took great care in ensuring it was secured neatly and thoroughly. Can't wait to see it flourish! I will definitely order from LUCKY again.

    Well worth the wait!

    Some of the best care in packing I've seen with aquatic plants. Came in great shape. Love the 3 d printed shelves with suction cups! Wish I would have ordered a couple more!
