Best for floating on the surface of the water in aquariums.


Azolla is a genus of seven species of aquatic ferns in the family Salviniaceae. The plants are small, only a few centimetres across. Azolla is a productive plant and grows in abundance. Their roots hang in the water. It can form 30cm (11 inches) thick mats and cover 100% of the surface water. It has many small, scale-like leaves, overlapping each other, this prevents local insects and amphibians from reaching beneath. Azolla looks nothing like other typical ferns, more resembling duckweed or some mosses. They cannot survive winters with prolonged freezes. A blanket won’t help, so it is grown as an ornamental plant in warmer conditions where it can enjoy partial shade or full sunlight. It is not tolerant of salinity.

So far so good! Growing in a small container pond outside. Looks to be growing

Cute floater plant!

I got the plant in good condition. I also got a little snail friend and some black worms hiding in there which became good food for my tetras. I actually didn’t like the look tho and the roots did detach and go everywhere so now they’re in a separate pond growing outside.

Came in half dead

When the plants arrived, a lot of them were dying and only very few were green, however, because shipping was fast it did not die off completely and I was able to save it. Came with a bit of duckweed, but a very small amount. Overall, alright.

Full of Duckweed

This arrived today, was a good amount but is 30% (for now) duckweed, which I've only just finished getting rid of from my tanks
