Forsale Floating Plants - Frogbits, Riccia, Salvinia & more

All floaters are great at keeping algae at bay in two ways; by lowering light levels and by using up ammonia & excess nutrients.

Floaters I have:

Lesser duckweed - small, spreads like mad.
$3.00 for lots
AVAIL
Giant Duckweed - also spreads, & easier to remove than lesser & looks good mixed with lesser
$3.00 for lots
SOLD OUT!
Giant Red Duckweed - red version (red on bottom, kinda cool!)
$3.00 for lots
AVAIL
Amazon Frogbits - Love these! Nice long roots & grows the biggest (2-4"across) & great goldfish food
$5.00 for 10 plants
AVAIL
Mini Water Lettuce - different texture and grey-green
$4.00 for 10 plants
AVAIL
Salvinia minima -spreads nicely & easier to remove (than duckweed)
$4.00 for 20 plants
AVAIL
Riccia fluitans, which I use as a floater (you can tie on rocks & wood) and the green colour is stunning, even in Lo-tech tanks.
$6.00/portion or 2/$10 for 3x3"(tennis ball size)
AVAIL - 5 PORTIONS

You have passion for the hobby! Nice to see.

I was also stunned when you started naming my Hosta plants in the back garden. You obviously love plants like I do. I hope you enjoyed my garden and good luck with the native Opunta cactus

Enjoy your new floating plants.

Are they all going in your pond?

I do have cactus available.

It is the Opuntia humifusa. I've had mine for 10+ years in my front garden. It needs full sun & a dry location, especially in winter months.

And yes, its native to Ontario.

Thanks for the link.

The other one is Opuntia imbricata or WALKINGSTICK CHOLLA. It has green flowers.

I did buy them at Humber Nursery

8386 Highway 50
Brampton, ON L6T 0A5
(416) 798-8733

They have an amazing selection
