Extreme Low Light Plant

OK, wierd question that I think I know the answer to. Is there a plant that will grow or at least survive in a place that has extremely low light? Almost no light? Also it will be in a place that is barely accessable without disturbing the substrate alot. Should I even risk that?

Thank You,

Chris

I second java fern . If that doesn't grow than nothing else will.  I do find that it grows best either attached to wood or attached to clay flowerpots or pieces .If is for substrate as Chris stated anubias .

When you say no light do you mean no added light or are you talking about a dark closet?

Humm not sure a fern would fit. It probably only will be 2 inches high or so. I was thinking maybe java moss? Other mosses?

Like the cave area I'm planning in my tank journal. I plan on a small viewing Window on the side of the tank. Maybe 4" by 2" the cave itself is like 10" deep.

If its that small probably some moss or anubia nana. They can stay pretty small. Probably some moss if there is a little bit of,light.

No works at all.

the entrance, I would like to hide so they feel safe, but they need to be able to pass easily. Currently I am thinking of weeping attached to the rock above to look like vines, but still unsure.

One thing I am worried about the cave is if something (plant or shrimp) dies in it. But I can always see how it goes at first.

I'm currently traveling for work, but when I get back t will start dry starting some fissidens .

Thank you,

Chris
