Bolbitis heteroclita "difformis" is a small, fine-leaved form of B. heteroclita, originating from the Philippines. It is also sold under the trade names "Mini Bolbitis", "Davallia sp.", "Bolbitis Davallia sp." or "Bolbitis difformis".
This fern grows very slowly under water and it attaches itself to hardscape with its roots. Its underwater leaves are much smaller than its emerged foliage, and less finely feathered. On old emerged leaves, adventitious plants will form.
Bolbitis heteroclita "difformis" grows best when cultivated as terrestrial plant, on moderately moist soil, where it forms a low carpet of only up to around 7 cm in height with its creeping rhizomes. Its delicate pinnate leaves remind a little of parsley.
