Frog bit (the perfect Floater)
How would you like the perfect floating plant? A plant that doesn't take over like duckweed? A plant that you can easily remove if it is blocking out too much light?
A plant that has the most symmetrical from of any floating plant?
Say hello to Frog bit. What is it's scientific name? In the words of a great southern plant supplier... "Honey, it didn't come with a birth certificate." (We believe it's Limnobium Spongia)
This is cool round little plant.
It has leaves that are around an inch in diameter. They are nearly perfect circles. Unlike a dwarf lily or a red tiger lotus these leaves have a thicker texture to them. They seem to be a bit more durable. While I don't keep plant eating fish, I would guess these would hold up to plant eaters a tad better than a duckweed.
These would make a great edition to a tank that is suffering from an algae problem as they would be able to cover a decent amount of surface area in a small amount of time.
LIKE ALL FLOATING PLANTS... These have the "Aerial advantage" that is to say they can get more both more light and CO2 from the waters surface. (CO2 is easier to obtain form the atmosphere than in water, and the light- any light- doesn't need to penetrate any water at all)
What I like about this plant is how it stays as ONE unit and makes a "mini lily pad" setup for our smaller indoor setups.
GRAB SOME FROG BIT while we have it in stock.
One Portion has 5 or more leaves on it.
I love how it’s labeled as “the best floater” and even though the term “best” cannot be taken seriously because it is an opinion and not a fact, what I received is nothing even close to a floating plant. This plant in hand is none other than the invasive species European Frog bit that needs to be planted. Spent $20 for this nonsense.
Plants can fast in great condition better than pictures on web site, excellent experience will definitely buy from here again
Dustin was perfect and professional, sent me my order fast and the plant was well packaged and very healthy. Not quite what I was expecting, though... Maybe it'll reorient to my tank eventually? Perhaps I need a different breed of floater. :)
I’ve been wanting frog but for a year, when Dustin posted that he had some for sale I tried to buy some but he sold out. I was super bummed. But they came back in stock quickly and I was able to get some. They came in quick and in great condition. Thank you.
