A great starter species for those wanting to start growing these aquatic carnivores. The little plant grows below the water's surface hunting for aquatic prey including newly hatched mosquito larvae!  

Flowering can be triggered with water level drops.


Best in a pond that receives morning sun and afternoon shade. This plant can be killed by algae so it's important to have other aquatic plants around to help keep nutrient levels low and balanced. No or low nutrients = No algae.

Grows well in aquariums even terrariums with shallow ponds. Can handle low light and bright light conditions.

Before purchasing please contact us to see which provenance we might have close to you.


If unavailable  plants are propagated to order. Please contact us for more information.

Price listed for a handful of this baby mosquito larvae killer.

Tube stock size is preferable as it allows plants to be transported much easier as well as establishing much quicker in their new homes compared to larger sized plants
