Vesicularia "Erect Moss" is a popular aquarium plant known for its lush green appearance and its ability to grow vertically. It belongs to the genus Vesicularia within the family Hypnaceae. The "erect" characteristic in its name refers to its growth habit, where it tends to grow upright rather than spreading out horizontally like some other moss species.

In aquariums, Vesicularia "Erect Moss" is often used to create natural-looking aquascapes, providing both aesthetic appeal and functional benefits. Its dense growth can offer hiding places for fish and shrimp fry, as well as a surface for beneficial bacteria to colonize. It can be attached to driftwood, rocks, or other aquarium décor using thread or glue until it establishes itself.

Proper care for Vesicularia "Erect Moss" typically involves providing moderate to high lighting, as well as regular pruning to prevent it from becoming too dense and to encourage healthy growth. Like many moss species, it can thrive in a wide range of water parameters, making it suitable for various aquarium setups. Additionally, it benefits from occasional fertilization and carbon dioxide supplementation, especially in high-tech planted aquariums.
