How do I care for Callitriche stagnalis?

This is one of the few submerged plants active in autumn and winter. Goldfish are partial to the young succulent leaves and many insects shelter in their tangled masses. In fast-flowing water, the leaves are held below the surface. In still shallow water the leaves may protrude but a centimetre or two. It can be dropped in your pond as a weighted bunch but it benefits from being planted in soil. Keep in full sun to part shade.

Please note: Due to the seasonal nature of pond plants, we reserve the right to swap the plants in your order with a similar species.
