Default Java fern question

I just bought a large java fern. I read somewhere in the past that the
spores on the leaves can be used to grow new plants. How is this done? Can
you pick a spore off and drop it in the gravel? Or how else can you grow a
new plant? Thanks.

Java fern is a most hardy low light plant. Hard to not keep it from
not spreading. I have JF growing without burying the bottom, I just
weight them down with lead weight.

For some reason, one of my 10 gallon tanks seems to have perfect
conditions for JF and I must "harvest" large floating islands of the
plants, whereas my 29 gallon isn't so great. I have replaced the 29
gallon JF several times using starter from the 10. The latest one I
sunk with a lead weight and it is doing well, so far.

Baby plants will grow on leaves all on
their own. I have no idea what if anything
you can do to trigger the process. I started
with one small-ish Java Fern and now
have them all over my tanks due to self
reproducing.

Do nothing and new plants will grow at the leaf tips.

Get two plants a boy and a girl put them in the same tank and they
will screw and have "baby" plants just like Gail stated.........Then
you have to diaper them and titty feed them and burp them..........
