Water Lettuce - Sold in Store Only
Regular price $ 0.00
Water Lettuce has velvety foliage and bright green leaves; they grow to lengths of up to 10 inches and up to 4 inches wide. Water Lettuce helps to provide shade for the pond and fish, as well as a safe haven and spawning area for the fish. They help oxygenate and clarify the water and will use the extra organic nutrients in the pond, thereby reducing algae production. This plant can produce plantlets that stretch out from the mother plant on slender stems. These can be separated and the older plants can be thinned out. Water Lettuce seems to prefer some shade in warmer climates, but is also susceptible to frost.
