This pretty and delicate British native oxygenator has small rosettes of green leaves, approximately 2cm across, which float on the water surface, with fine stems below. A good oxygenator for small spaces, as its growth is not particularly fast, its foliage is soft and small, and it is easy to control.  

If designing a planting scheme, we recommend approximately 6 Callitriche plants per square foot of water surface. Read more on how to pot and care for your plant.
