Description
This tender floating aquatic is perfect for tropical indoor pools. Commonly known as Water lettuce, it forms rosettes of softly hairy foliage that sit at the water’s surface with the fine roots suspended beneath. Pistia stratiotes multiplies via runners to form floating colonies, which offer excellent shade and cover for fish. This tender perennial is best grown in very sheltered outdoor ponds or frost free indoor ponds at a temperature of 15°c (59F) or above. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 20cm (16"). Planting depth: Zones 2, 3 & 4 floating on water's surface.

More Info
Pistia is not hardy and often difficult to overwinter. It is therefore generally treated as an annual in the UK. Remove decaying plants after the first frosts.
