Water fern (Azolla filiculoides)

$13.50


Water fern (Azolla filiculoides)

This is a small floating plant (slightly bigger than duckweed), often called fairy moss, with tiny scale-shaped leaves. It provides a thick lacy velvet carpet of floating bluish-green or, in the autumn a brilliant crimson congested foliage that is very beautiful. Its a favorite food of aquatic turtles and can tolerate brackish water.

An interesting characteristic of Azolla is that it has a mutual living relationship with alga that "fixes" or prepares nitrogen from the atmosphere for the tiny plant as food.
