Yeah! My java ferns, moss, and Anubis love to attach to it more than any other type of rock/driftwood that I have!

Just be careful because like a Pp said, it is sharp and if a fish gets too close it can injure them. I've not had that problem in the years I've used it, but I figure it's bound to happen eventually with someone. Just hope it's not too severe when it does.
