ANNUAL PLANT - sold in 1 cup portions

Azolla (Azolla caroliniana), also known as mosquito fern and ferry moss, is a tiny floating aquatic that’s about 1/2 inch in diameter.

Depending on light conditions, this plant may be green, light red or a deep burgundy.  It prefers to grow in full sun to part shade.

Azolla spreads vigorously on the water surface thereby controlling algae growth by reducing sunlight penetration.   It also absorbs the nutrients that would otherwise be utilized by algae.  The tiny root systems make an excellent cover for fry.
