This species was first introduced into cultivation as “species floating”. In South Africa where it grows naturally it can often be found growing on floating mats in shallow water. The leaves are boxed off and mature plants can be up to two inches across. It does reseed.
Sun: Full sun indoors, or outdoors
Water: Always sitting in at least two inches of distilled or purified water
Temperature: 25 degrees - 80 degrees, can even take temperatures from freezing to 100 degrees but only for short periods. Would appreciate cool nights
