More Info

A small, usually floating fern, in places growing in the mud. Green to red in color, depending on sunlight exposure. It forms dense mats on the surface of the water. A good source of supplemental food for Koi and Goldfish. Looks especially good when allowed to grow on a ledge in a water fall or stream. Very nice in terraria. One portion is approximately the volume of a 1 cup measure. This is a member of a special group of ferns, the Salviniaceae, which includes one other genus, Salvinia. Azolla comprises 6 species, the most common two are A. caroliniana and A. filliculoides. We make no attempt to separate the two because the differences are nearly imperceptible. Azolla makes a great cover for water or mud. It is great food for Koi and Goldfish. The fish will eat whatever is out over open water butgenerally leave patches of it in harder to reach areas. These make a good source for more for the fish to eat as they break loose and float free. It is also possible to grow it over algal mats in drip zones in water falls. Tolerates considerable cold. Turns red in full sun, green in shade.

Nice addition to small pond
By 
I have a 100 gallon pond and waterfall with two large goldfish and a recurring string algae problem. The Fairy Moss is doing better than other plants I've tried and looks especially nice where it's more shaded. It's reddish-green-brown in areas of direct sun but is still growing well and giving the pond some much needed shade. The goldfish don't seem to want to eat it though. I was impressed with this first order from PondPlants. My plants came very quickly and in perfect condition. Also, the portion was very generous. Thanks!

Awesome plants

I'm so glad I found this wonderful provider of healthy, lively pond plants. My Fairy Moss is thriving. My fish gobbled up all the duckweed already, so I need to order more. It shipped quickly and the owners are very responsive to my pond questions.
