Water Lettuce (Pistia Stratioes), is a floating pond plant that is great for naturally increasing filtration and works well in shady ponds. Water lettuce has a ribbed and velvety texture and ranges in color from light green to lime green and looks very much like a head of cabbage. The roots of water lettuce are submersed and feathery making it ideal for natural filtration.
