Name: Riccia Fluitans


Location in Tank: Floating/Foreground


Demands: Easy as a floating plant. Medium as a foreground


Water parameters: Not fussy


Lighting: Not fussy


CO2 required?: For best results as a foreground plant CO2 is recommended


Growth rate: Fast


Country of origin: Multiple


Additional Info: As a floating plant this is great for creating shade and a refuge for fry. Riccia comes into its own as a foreground plant. Once tied to a stone or piece of wood it will form a lovely dense carpet, it will not however attach itself to the stone/wood as some mosses do. When using CO2, Riccia in its submerged form will produce beautiful oxygen bubbles from the tip of each "branch", This is known as pearling.
