An excellent oxygenator, it has three leaf forms, two above the surface and one below. It can grow in fast flowing or still water. Its beautiful emerald green leaves can often be seen in fast flowing rivers around the UK.
Repotting or planting
We suggest planting 2-3 bunches per 1m². They benefit from the base of the plant being pushed into soil or gravel.
Bunches – Can be dropped in pond as a weighted bunch but it benefits from being planted in soil.
Container grown – In fast flowing water ensure it is anchored well, the leaves may remain under the surface due to the flow. In still or slower flowing water the leaves will come above the surface where it will flower.
