Hydrocharis Morsus Ranae | Frogbit

Hydrocharis Morsus Ranae, commonly known as Frogbit, is a pretty little native plant with small kidney-shaped, bright green leaves and very small white flowers. Frogbit is a summer plant that can tolerate dense shade, allow frogbit to die back naturally in the autumn, as small buds are formed which fall off and sink to the bottom while the old plant rots away. These winter buds remain on the bottom to rise again in the spring to form new plants.

Where do you plant floating pond plants?
It is recommended that 3-5 small floating plants like Hydrocharis Morsus Ranae - Frogbit are added to your pond per 1m² (metre squared) of water. This allows for growth and spread of the growing pond plant, and gives it the necessary space to establish. Simply place your floating pond plant on the surface of your water, and leave it to float. Most floating pond plants prefer still or slow-moving water, and will follow water currents to a natural position. Avoid placing near fast-flowing filters or outlets, otherwise the floating pond plant will congregate around the filter.
