Pistia
 

Pistia

The Pistia genus appears to contain only one species. It is a floating plant which grows rather slowly, but it is of great interest to aquarists.

Pistia stratoites

The leaves of the water lettuce have a velvety sheen. This plant needs strong lighting to grow and for seedlings to form on the runners. It provides an aquarium with shade and a refuge for fry. It is badly affected by drops of water formed by condensation on the lid of the tank. Diameter: 5-6 cm.
