Limnobium laevigatum from South America is a decorative floating plant that is particularly suitable for open aquariums. 1-5 cm tall and leaves from 5-15 cm wide. It is also good in traditional aquariums, because the fine, long and decorative roots provide protection to gouramies and other surface fish that like the roots of floating plants. If there are enough nutrients in the water and the light intensity is good, new leaves will appear above the water surface.

Really healthy, spreading well

Very pleased with my purchase, it is growing well in my tank, I wasn't sure how well it would do as I have a lid on the aquarium and little light.

Great floating plant, roots are growing great they will provide plenty of cover for the new fish when they arrive

by John W.
These plants arrived promptly but tbh did not look very impressive. Once I'd separated them I had a handful of small leaves that did float in my tank but did not look like they'd come to much. I was then away for a week and when i got back they're were already lovely waving roots trailing in the water and I'm very happy.

Grows like a weed - had it a couple of weeks and already having to prune it back/give to friends. Sooks up nitrates like there's no tomorrow.

Unusually for Aqua Essentials, my experience with this plant was negative. The pot was leaking on receipt and some of the leaves had turned yellow. The quantity in the pack was also disappointing. The last time I purchased Tropica floating plants the pot was jam packed, but on this occasion it was less than half full. Plants that were ok to use are showing signs of recovery after a week.

Ask a question about this product
Would this grow well in a Fluval Edge 46 litre aquarium (it's the tall fluval edge)? I have lowered the water level to around 1 inch under the top glass of the Edge (to add better oxygen flow).


Should be fine

This might be a silly question but what's the defrayed between 1,2 grow and the other kind?


Tissue culture plants are grown in a laboratory- others are grown in greenhouses 

Should I leave my lid off my aquarium when adding Amazon frogbit.


It's better for the plant that way

would these survive in a 17C axolotl tank?


Probably - they'd just grow very slowly 

Do these need rinsing before adding to the aquarium? How do I rinse them without the plants washing down the drain?


Pour the liquid down the drain and you can gently rinse under tap water if you like. That said, I don't bother rinsing - I just check them in once I've poured the solution away.

Would it be happy in a tank with a glass lid? Say 6cm above the water line? Don’t want snails to do a runner…


probably yes
