Salvinia Natans
 
hi all,
I was wondering about salvinia natans. How low do the roots hang? How deep should the pool be. Would they be ok with a little disturbance in the water (a small stream would come into the pond)? And last does anyone have any to sell me, maybe near wisconsin? I heard about people throwing away handfuls of it at a time.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Its roots only hang down about a centimeter at most usually, its will probably survive even with some water movement, and its pretty cool i use it in most of my water features, except waterfalls. Duckweed will work also, and both help to filter and maintain water in small water features. But dont put duck weed in anything you arent sure you want it in, it will spread much faster then even the natens....also i've discovered duck weed will actually grow on land if its humid and moist enough. Not sure if it will spread but it survives....i like the natens better...but if you have a feature that the natens wont live in, try the duck weed its a lil hardier.

Yea, I put in duckweed, now its like some green algea on my rocks that have been out of the water for months. That stuff is sooo stubborn. Anyway, I much prefer water fern, and Salvinia. I grows nicely in my viv. Well not the water fern, I think that needs loads of light to grow well.
