The salvinia genus of plants is well known in the hobby for being a relatively undemanding floating plant. The plant will readily propagate itself through side-shoots and is not restricted by CO2 levels as it receives most of its carbon from the air. Also, unlike other floating plants, the roots of the salvinia floaters do not grow nearly as long as some other varieties of floating plants,making it an idea plant for those who do not want to manage the trimming of large root systems.

Loose cuttings are harvested from our aquariums at Aqua Lab. While we try our best to remove snails, we can't guarantee that these plants will be pest or disease-free. It's common for tiny snails or microscopic snail eggs to hitchhike on plants that come from an established aquarium. Please keep in mind that plant and portion sizes can vary as our plants grow and propagate.
We love the look of it! It has to be contained in a floating ring attached to the glass so it doesn't end up pushed under the water by the waterfall of the (where it eventually gets caught on the mesh of the filter intake), but otherwise, it's great! The fish like it, too!
