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. 

NOTE- You might get a “ taller “ thicker looking leaf than shown. (Dime diameter) We have some of it growing tightly in which case it will grow taller. It will spread out later.

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.

Not impressed

They came in and were just a giant pile of mess. If I hadn’t ordered other floating plants from another company I might think that’s just the nature of buying floating plants online. They looked terrible, weren’t very healthy and I ended up removing them after a couple of days because they just looked horrible.

Some OK

Some were yellowish in color, some were OK. Hoping those that were green will reproduce quickly.

Arrived partially dead

The frogbit arrived partially dead and then melted away pretty fast.

Beautiful and great price

These were some of the best looking plants I have ever purchased on line. I am super pleased with my first order. As a disabled Iraq war veteran who uses aquascaping as part of my ptsd therapy, I love the fact of how affordable everything is, allowing vets like me on a fixed income to be able to create beautiful tanks without breaking the bank.

Yellow Brown Color

The ones I received were yellowish and slightly brown. Not sure if this has to do with the lighting but I got a decent amount!
