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.

Growing Light: Partial to full shade
Water Depth: Floating
USDA Hardiness Zones: 9-11

  • Hitchhiker Warning

    We recommend cleaning all plants before adding them to your tank. We regularly perform quality checks prior to shipping plants. However, we cannot guarantee our plants to be snail or hitchhiker-free. If you do not want to risk snails, please consider rinsing plants, conducting a bleach dip, or quarantining plants prior to adding them in your aquarium. Snails are a natural part of working with live plants.
