Details

Giant Duckweed is a larger and equally prolific version of its more common relative, and it is a superb floating plant for the aquarium!
We are growing Giant Duckweed ourselves and the portion you will receive will mostly contain younger small sized pods. Do not be alarmed; each pod will grow in size to look more like the larger pods we have photographed. When this plant reproduces the pods are very tiny, but they will grow into giant duckweed pods when they are provided some tender love and care. 

 

Giant Duckweed is a fast-growing floating plant whose leaves/pods (or fronds) are relatively small and vibrant light green in color, with purple undersides.  It grows in dense colonies and provides hiding places for small invertebrates and fish.  This is a great plant for beginners, as it does not require special equipment, care, or knowledge.

Giant Duckweed is easy to grow and is fine with low-light setups, although more light means faster and denser growth.  It grows by absorbing waste (including nitrates) from the water, which reduces the pollutants that cause smelly or cloudy water and makes for happier pond or aquarium inhabitants!  Duckweed can greatly reduce or even eliminate the need for water changes.

This portion comes with 200 or more pods.  All of our plants are bright and healthy because they are kept in a water in a plant-dedicated tank rather than plastic packaging, which means your plant will arrive in top condition. 

All Aquatic Arts brand plants and animals come with a 100% live arrival guarantee, plus free email support!
