Water Lettuce Rosette
Watter Lettuce is a very popular floating plant in the hobby. Depending on its environment, the leaves may grow from approximately 1 inch to 4 inches in size. The leaves look fleshy and are covered by tiny hairs, giving them a velvety-like texture. Watter Lettuce produces many fine roots that provide shade and hiding places for small fish in the aquarium.
Care & Maintenance for Water Lettuce
Water Lettuce is very easy to care for in the aquarium. It is most suitable for open top aquariums or those with good ventilation to prevent the leaves from drying up or getting damaged.
- Minimum Lighting Required: Strong
- Temperature Range: 72-82°F
- Tank Placement: Floating
Watter Lettuce likes strong light and, under good conditions, will grow and propage fast. It is great at removing excess nutrients from the aquarium's water column, helping keep algea in check, water clean, and your fish healthy.

The roots on these, were super healthy on all plants. The leaves on two tho, were pretty damaged. I had to trim quite a bit. Hopefully they recover. The 3rd is healthy and gorgeous!
