Lemna trisulca is more attractive than L. minor and not quite as fast growing, although in good conditions it will still need regular thinning. The leaves -typically 0.4 in (1 cm) long and 0.2 in (0.5 cm) wide - are connected by short stalks and spread to create a dense mat across the water surface. Provide adequate ventilation above them.

Home aquariums are becoming more and more popular, it is a hobby that many people are flocking too and fish shops are on the rise. Fish are generally easy to keep although do they need quite a bit of attention. Puppies and kittens were the typical pet but now fish are becoming more and more frequent in house holds. In recent years fish shops have noticed a great increase in the rise of people wanting to purchase aquariums and fish, the boom has been great for local shops as the fish industry hasnt been such a great industry before now.
