Product Description

Description Free floating small plant which resembles a miniature water lily.  It has nickel sized, kidney shaped, green shiny leaves about 1 in. across that grow in rosettes on the water.  New rosettes arise from the plants to produce new growth.  An inconspicuous white flower with a yellow center may be tucked among the leaves. The undersides of the leaves are puffed with spongy, air-holding tissue, helping in the floating quality.  Again winterizing is only possible indoors in an aquarium.
