    Description

    Hottonia palustris grows into highly decorative light green bushes with feathered leaves. The shoot tips have the form of snow crystals. This aquatic plant originally comes from Europe, and it is not only suitable for cold-water tanks but also for moderately warm tropical aquaria. It needs strong light (at least 0.5 watts/litre) and must never ever be placed in the shade. Otherwise the lower parts of the plant will rot away. It ought to have a regular nitrate and phosphate supply, the injection of CO2 will result in a vital, strong appearance. Hottonia palustris is great as bush in the middle ground of the aquarium. Its bushy ramified growth habit of the slanting ascending stems can be enhanced by regular trimming. Also known under the erroneous name Hottonia inflata in trade and in the hobby, however, the latter is another species not in cultivation at all.

    Hottonia palustris is native to Europe, an aquatic plant with pinnate, alternate leaves. It is endangered, critically endangered or already extinct in several regions. In Germany, the water violet or featherfoil is legally protected, and according to the German "Red List" of 1996, it is an endangered species there. Although still quite widely spread in the North German Plain, its overall populations are receding. Featherfoil e.g. grows in shaded, muddy-peaty ditches or on the edges of oxbow lakes, forming dense submersed populations. Only its beautiful flower stalks reach above the waterline in May and June. If the location falls dry, the plant forms low-growing, matlike emersed populations. It is a known medicinal plant in natural medicine. It is illegal to collect Hottonia palustris from the wild, however, it is readily available for ponds or aquariums in trade. (read more)

    Obwohl es zu mir ins Ausland geschickt worden ist und das Wochenende dazwischen war, kam die Pflanze noch ganz frisch an. Super Verpackung.
