Salvinia originates from South and Central America.  It is a fast growing, floating plant that does not have any special requirements.  It produces small oval leaves and is highly adaptable so it can be used in most aquariums to provide cover and shade for surface-dwelling fish and to remove excess nutrients from the water column.

    Most of the plants came alive and healthy. Rhodes are doing very well in my tank. A few of the plants were dead but I would order again

    Salvinia 4 oz. Cup

    My Salvinia arrived ready to float and beautify my aquarium. Some edges were brownish from shipping but have lessened with water contact. There were a lot of plants in the cup-- at least twenty.

    It came in a little worse condition than pictured, but the plant has already started reproducing within three days.

    The plants were shipped quite fast. They really pack them in the container, so it’s well worth the money! They are beautiful and healthy and my betta absolutely loves them!

    Pretty little floaters

    I do love the look of these plants, the ones I recieved are alive, and seemingly healthy but do not look quite like the picture... Mine came a little brown, perhaps from shipping (?) And the leaves are closed up a bit, like a venus fly trap. I'm sure with a little time they will color back up and open but only time will tell, if anything they will split and grow new plants. Quite happy as I got a bunch of them even from the smallest package I had to split it between quite a few tanks.

    the cup i received was packed full of wet, green plants. they covered a lot more of the surface of the aquarium than i expected! it’s been about half of a week since i put them in my tank, and i think i already see new growth. awesome! totally recommend these plants! they have an interesting texture on the top of the leaves, small hairy looking roots, and grow in cute little bunches

    I have never worked with this plant before. It is small and a floater plant. It's kinda messy I guess. Still have to get used to it.
