Salvinia auriculata is an interesting floating fern from tropical America. It is very fast growing and easy to care for. The floating fern is a good nutrient consumer – that means, excess nutrients are quickly removed. Therefore, it is good to use in the start-up phase of an aquarium. For Betta fish, the root system of Salvinia is an optimal resting place. Likewise, the roots provide hiding places for young fish. In the garden pond or water trough, a warm and sunny location is preferred.
