Description

This nice floating fern is available in trade under the name of Salvinia natans. However, it doesn't belong to S. natans but to the Salvinia auriculata species group, native to tropical America. This fast-growing floating plant is highly decorative especially in open tanks due to its geminate ovoid floating leaves. As it is a very fast grower it removes surplus nutrients from the water very reliably. It is especially recommendable for breeding tanks; its rootlike finely split underwater leaves provide fish fry with great places to hide.

The floating ferns of the Salvinia auriculata species group originate from tropical America but are also introduced in other parts of the world. This species group (agg. = "aggregate") includes the species S. auriculata, S. biloba, S. herzogii and S. molesta.

Floating fern sold under the name "Salvinia natans" normally belongs to the Salvinia auriculata group and is not Salvinia natans, an annual species of Europe, North Africa and Asia.

Ihr könnt eine große Portion gesunder Pflanzen erwarten. Bei mir gab es sogar eine Schale extra (umsonst; ungefragt). Bin sehr zufrieden. :)
