American Frogbit

American Frogbit

( Limnobium spongia). American frogbit is a much larger version of Amazon frogbit. Large, mature plants will root themselves into the substrate but remain sitting right on the water surface. IF they become densely packed, they will rise above the water, but this rarely happens. It is a much larger plant than Amazon frogbit as well. Most of the plants I have on hand now run about 8-10 inches though only the leaf upper surface remains above the water. These propagate readily by sending off shoots. They also have a small bloom similar to snowflake but it is not astounding. The plant itself is the interest and adds a nice touch to any pond. And, YES, small to medium frogs will hang out on top of a leaf! These can also be grown right at waters edge in the mud where they become a nice erect rosette of heart shaped waxy leaves and spread readily. These are sold as single bare root plants.

Hornwort

Hornwort

(Ceratophyllum demersum)Hornwort, also known as coontail, has a tight hairlike foliage and helps to oxygenate and clarify ponds and aquariums. It is appropriate for both. In aquariums, it can sometimes outgrow its space and need to be thinned, but it makes a great escape for smaller fish. In ponds the tips will become dark green and tight in the late fall and drop to the bottom where they will stay until spring when they will emerge, regrow and repopulate your pond. During regular growth it is a nice rich green and growth tips that are actively growing will be a slight brown/green color. It can be anchored or just left to float as it does very well either way.

Jumbo Salvinia

Jumbo Salvinia

(Salvinia oblongifolia) Giant Salviia is a Free floating aquatic fern developing from a somewhat zigzagged horizontal stem (rhizome) that floats just under the water surface. The rhizome bears opposite pairs of rectangular floating leaves and a third submersed, filamentous leaf along each node. The roots are absent, although the submersed leaf has a root-like look. Floating leaves are three times longer than wide, measuring about 1 to 2 inches long and 1/2to 3/4 inch wide. Floating leaves lie flat or can be folded on the mid-rib depending on the density of the population. Individual plants commonly grow 20 - 25 cm long, Nearly all parts of the plant, except the upper leaf surface are sparsely clothed in chestnut colored hairs.
