Oxygen Weed - Elodea Canadensis

Elodea Canadensis is the only Oxygen Weed legally sold. Suited to ponds and larger tanks as they are easy to grow and can reach great heights for an aquatic plant.

 

Native to North America but has spread across the globe. It’s home in ponds, canals and some slow-flowing rivers. Reaching heights of a few metres is an easy feat for them, anywhere from 3 – 6 m. Make sure to prune regularly, so Elodea doesn’t take over your tank! Leaves are bright green, oblong and 6 – 17 mm long and grow along brittle stems. Small white flowers will bloom and sit on the surface of the water. They need moderate to high light, summer temperatures, but can tolerate water temperatures of up to 28 C. Propagate through cuttings.

 

10  cut stems per bunch 

 

To ensure you get the best quality plant, we order plants in fresh at the end of each week, for next week delivery. Straight to your door. This way, we assure you receive healthy, vibrant plants. Doing this means we can also lower our prices for you. Please expect delivery to be Thursday of the following week that you ordered.
