Water Sprite Lace Leaf Ceratopteris Thalictroide LIVE AQUARIUM PLANT
The Water Sprite, also known as the Indian Fern, is a great plant to use as a mid-ground plant and also as a floating plant. The delicate, lacy leaves also make great cover for fry to hide among. Due to its poor root system, the Water Sprite retrieves nutrients from the water.
Water sprite is a very decorative plant with lace-like leaves that add a lovely texture to the aquarium. It works well as a background plant; with its large size it's an easy way to add a lot of green to your tank. Try combining water sprite with red or pink plants for an extra spectacular effect. Foraging grounds
The Water Sprite will grow profusely under the correct conditions, and for this reason, is excellent at removing unwanted and unhealthy inorganic nutrients from the aquarium water. In smaller aquariums with open tops, the Water Sprite can grow out of the tank and form beautiful surface leaves. The delicately branched leaves are very decorative and provide good contrast to other leaf shapes.
This is an easy to grow stem plant. Can grow both planted as a traditional stem plant. Or as a floating plant. This is the lace leaf variety. When floating it will have very broad leaves. When planted in the gravel it'll have a much finer leaf structure.
