new java fern

I added some java fern to my main tank. Usually at the store can only find the narrow needle-leaf java fern, or sometimes windelov, they never seem to have the regular standard one.
This week I came across some and bought two tubes.
I really could have just got one. Separated out there were ten rhizome pieces with two or three nice leaves each
and a few small bits I banded to a pebble in case they grow.
Initially I tied them onto the front end of my driftwood log, side against the glass.
But after a day or two realized I'd prefer them more in the background...
Also added a sprig of rhiome and leaf one of the windelov fern clumps in here- that got trimmed out of the tenner.
