Limnobium laevigatum from South America is a decorative floating plant that is particularly suitable for open aquariums.
1-5 cm tall and leaves from 5-15 cm wide.

It is also good in traditional aquariums, because the fine, long and decorative roots provide protection to gouramies and other surface fish that like the roots of floating plants. Fry also utalize the roots for protection. This plant will also look good in mini ponds as well.

  • If there are enough nutrients in the water and the light intensity is good, new leaves will appear above the water surface. This plant also gives out runners. Too many plants will shade out the plants below and thus excess plants should be removed and rehomed or discarded appropriatly.

    When the nutrient level in the water decreases, it will grow much slower which makes it a great indicator of the available nutrients. Contact local athorities to see if you are allowed to keep this plant as some states have restrictions on floating plants.
