Salvinia (Salvinia Rotundifolia Minima) | 4 oz Cup

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 with fine feather-like roots designed to take up and remove the maximum amount of nutrients from the water. The floating leaves will also provide cover and shade for surface-dwelling fish and make them feel more secure. Salvinia is highly adaptable and can be used in most aquariums. 

Caring for Salvinia

There are no special care requirements for Salvinia. For more robust growth, good lighting and liquid fertilization is recommended. Salvinia is a floating plant and good ventilation at the water surface will result in better and faster growth. Salvinia is also tolerant

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate
  • Temperature Range: 65-85 °F
  • Tank Placement: Floating

    This is my first time I used Modern Aquarium company to buy plants and I feel very satisfied with my experience. The website was user friendly and was very easy to navigate. The plants arrived on time and all of them looked healthy. I will be back for more plants.

    Great quality and arrived pretty quickly!

    They arrived pretty quickly considering the global shipping delays lately (I live in Hawai'i), and they arrived in great condition! My fish already love hiding underneath them, so this was a great addition to my tank.

    Ordered the 4 oz cup and was highly pleased. The cup was packed full of the plants. The shipping was quick and the quality was good. Nice color and strong plants. They are flourishing in my aquarium and the perfect accent to the aesthetics.

    The salvia I received was beautiful! Each bunch was full and very healthy. It looks wonderful floating in my tank.

    I ordered two cups and literally most of it was brown so I assumed it was no good and kept what I considered to be ‘good’. These things grow like crazy! It’ it was so cool to see the roots grow and sprout mini ones and watch them grow! Thank you guys so much!

    Salvinia quality 10/10

    Posted by James Weigle on 28 Apr 2021

    My order arrived early, and everything was stunning. The plants are healthy and vibrant, and settling into their new homes quite well. I was shocked at how much come in the container! You get your money’s worth. 10/10

    This was one of the plants out of 5 that I ordered they arrived in just 5 days and the one that stood out for me was the salvinia it was the perfect amount for my tank and it was beautiful and matured already and had really nice dark roots.

    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

    Posted by Madonna Fowler on 25 Dec 2020

    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.
