Japanese Takashi Amano has inspired many aquarium owners to keep the 1-5 cm tall cosmopolitic moss, Riccia fluitans, submerged. It can be kept down by tying it to a stone with a piece of fishing line, but new shoots always grow towards the surface, so it may be necessary to prune it with scissors. Riccia fluitans thrives best with added CO2 and in good growing conditions small oxygen bubbles form on the leaf tips. As a traditional floating plant offers good protection for young fish.

Growth:   Medium
Height:  1-5 cm
Width:   5-10cm

As always, arrived in perfect condition. There was enough to create 3 separate clumps attached to driftwood. 3 weeks on and the growth is phenomenal. It has at least tripled in size

Ask a question about this product
Is this delivered on mesh or wood? what will be the approx size please??


They're sold in 5cm cups

when grown on could they be glued on to the back of the tank to form a wall


It is a floating plant so I wouldn't recommend it.

Hi Richard. I currently have a low tech tank which contains riccia in my plant list,it's not doing great and i was wondering if it could be adversely affected by Neutro co2 in the same way Vallis is. Thanks in advance.


Yes. Riccia is another true aquatic plant which is negatively effected by liquid carbon.

it does exceptionally well with pressurised CO2.
