Description

The shiny green foliage is filled with spongy tissue for buoyancy. Juvenile plants are formed on the ends of runners. The roots make excellent cover for fry and remove nitrates, helping to prevent algae.

Repotting or planting

We suggest 2-3 large floating plants per 1m²

Care instructions

Not hardy. Remove decaying plants after the first frost. To overwinter, place in shallow water with a little soil for the roots to grow into. Keep in good light at above 10 °c. Return to the pond late April – May when there is no risk of frost.
