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.
Got these to spice up my scale ,love em I’m glad I got the ice pack because they stayed nice and green in the heat
My third order. It exceeded my expectations which were already high from the first two orders. Disappointed some stuff was out of stock. But the plants were great. Healthy with long roots. Great to hide fry. Will order again when backordered stock arrives. Thanks.
They looked okay when they came in (Im new to plants so..idk) but in the last few days I see signs of them melting. I'm hoping in a week or so they will come back and grow.
Ive been looking to grab some frogbit, and i ordered this on monday 8/10. It showed up on 8/14. All of the leaves were yellow, and the bag smelled foul when I opened it. I ended up throwing the frog bit out after a couple days.
I’m inexperienced with this plant. When it arrived there were about 4 leaves that looked like they had fallen off the main plant. I thought maybe the single leaves would grow roots but they began to brown. The main plant has 4 remaining leaves and a new baby leaf on it so I’m hopeful it will stay alive and grow.
