Azolla caroliniana

Common name: Water velvet

Origin: North America

Water velvet is a small (0.8-1.2 in/2-3 cm diameter) floating plant that can be used in tropical and unheated aquariums and even in outdoor ponds (although in ponds it may die back in winter). In good conditions, the plant will spread rapidly and may need to be thinned regularly. It does not produce trailing roots, but will provide cover for some fish. In brighter lighting, the plant sports an attractive rusty red coloration. Provide adequate ventilation in the aquarium to prevent condensation on the leaves or overheating.
