Description

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.

Frogbit arrived in mostly good condition, a few leaves were yellow however. Aside from this the frogbit was healthy.

Sorry to hear this - it shouldn't happen but can only assume too long in the post. We recommend express delivery for all plants to ensure a rapid delivery.

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?

 
Staff

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.

 
Staff

It's better for the plant that way


 
Guest
would these survive in a 17C axolotl tank?

 
Staff

Probably - they'd just grow very slowly 


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

 
Staff

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…

 
Staff

probably yes
