Salvinia (Floater)


5 Pieces

Lighting: Low to High
It can survive in low light but will shrink in size. The more intense the light, the thicker and bigger it will grow.

CO2 : Low
A medium need in CO2 is 6-14 mg/L. A high demand in CO2 is approx. 15-25 mg/L. However, since it is a floater and will sit atop your aquarium, it can breathe the CO2 in the air – no CO2 injection is necessary.

Difficulty: Easy
Salvinia is a very easy floater to take care of. You can almost never kill the plant and it will multiply quite fast in your tank so you will have to manage its growth and spread from month to month depending on your lighting.

Aquarium substrate: not required

Salvinia is a floating fern that can sit beautifully atop your aquarium scape, it can grow from 1-3cm depending on the nutrition in the water column and the lighting. Lighter-colored leaves are a sign of a shortage of micronutrients.

Salvinia tends to shade light from the plants at the bottom and some varieties have small hairs on their leaves, making them water resistant.

This plant helps prevent algae by shading parts of the aquarium and sucking up excess nutrients in the water. Salvinia also grows very big in the wild and in optimum conditions. Truly a decorative plant for open aquariums.
