ANNUAL PLANT - sold in 1 cup portions

Salvinia (Salvinia natans) or water fern is a free-floating, rootless, aquatic fern that forms rapidly expanding mats of foliage on still water surfaces.  It prefers part to full shade, but will tolerate full sun.

Its leaves are hairy and in whorls of three.  Two elliptic, light green leaves appear on the water surface and the third leaf (which performs root functions) is heavily dissected and submerged.

Salvinia 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.
