Water Butterfly Wings Salvinia Natans Pack of 10

Salvinia Natans is a free-floating aquatic fern which has two nickel-sized leaves which lie flat against the surface of the water, and a third leaf which is always submerged and functions as a root. Cuticular papillae on the surface of the leaves keep water from interfering and serve to protect the leaves from decay. The plants grow into dense, floating mats which shade the water surface, helping to reduce algae growth and provide a good cover for baby fish and other small pond creatures.
