Common Name: Water Sprite, Lace Leaf

Water Sprite also known as Indian Fern, is an easy aquatic plant that can be commonly found floating in lakes and ponds throughout the world.  Water Sprite's rooting system is weaker than other aquatic plants, so it relies on absorbing nutrients through its leaves through the water column. This floating stem plant is an excellent addition for shrimp and fish breeders. It grows fast to absorb excess waste and nutrients from the water column while also providing hiding places for fry or shrimplets.
