Water spangles (Salvinia minima) are small aquatic fern plants which float on or just beneath the surface of still or slow-moving fresh water bodies. Plants have a creeping stem, branching leaves with small hairs on the leave surface. The floating plants provide cover for young fry and can be used as breeding aid for bubble-nest builders and livebearers.
These rapidly growing plants can also be useful as water purifiers, as they will remove nitrate, absorbing excess mineral nutrients, particularly nitrogen and phosphates.
Salvinia is sold per clump – approximately 12-15 plants
NOTE: Due to Quarantine Laws – no plants will be shipped to WA and TAS.
