Plant Glossary

Azolla sp. - also known as mosquito fern. Reproduces readily. A free-floating annual water fern 0.8-2.5 cm long, with tiny scale-like 2-lobed leaves; lobes each 1-2 mm long; leaves green or red, often giving water surface reddish appearance. Main stem with pinnate branches; branches longer towards base giving plant a triangular shape. Roots with fine lateral rootlets, appearing feathery. Produces both male and female spores.

Close up of two different duckweeds:
Spirodela polyrrhiza and Wolffia globosa.
The very tiny Wolffia plants are under 2 mm long


Java Moss - Vesicularia dubyana
Origin Southeast Asia
Aquarium use Attached to rocks or bogwood, spawning plant
Lighting Low-Moderate
Temperature 23oC or higher (73oF)
Water chemistry Not critical
Substrate Not applicable
Comments The plant should be attached to rocks or bogwood, where it will soon become firmly attached and begin to creep along the surface. It is easy to propagate - simply remove part of the plant and attach to a new surface.
