Product Description: Giant Water Spangles (Salvinia Oblongifolia) is an easy-to-grow floating plant, perfect for betta fish tanks! Floating plants are a great way to provide cover and shade for your tank's inhabitants and improve the water quality. The root structures of Giant Salvinia make great nurseries for fry and microfauna to grow. Make sure you have an aquarium-specific light. These plants are all grown in tanks with fish and invertebrates. Plants are never sold from tanks with sick fish. These plants are NOT free from duckweed or snails.
Quantities: 3 segments Oblongifolia. Roughly a "snack size bag" of 4" to 6" plants.
Shipping: I ship Mondays and Tuesdays only for orders placed by 9 pm PST on the previous day. It may take up to 5 days for your order to ship. I may hold shipments due to the weather. If that happens, you will be contacted through the email you provided on your order.
Please see our DOA Policy.
****Please note that not all of these plants are legal to own in every state. Please know what is legal to own in your state and order accordingly. This is your responsibility****
It entirely depends on your water chemistry. Soft water will allow the botanicals to lower your pH more than if you have medium or hard water. At Betta Botanicals HQ our tap water is Very Hard, ( 350+ppm) and we do not notice a change in water pH unless using Alder Cones or Macaranga leaves.
White growths are the colonization of biofilms and fungi in the aquarium. We call this the 'goo phase' and it is totally natural. Botanicals are fuel for the ecosystem and the populations of bacteria and fungi will naturally rise and fall.
100% yes. Our botanicals are for aquariums terrariums, vivariums and all natural enclosures.
We DO NOT recommend using botanicals that these fish can ingest. Botanicals like casuarina cones, small alder cones, and live oak are not suited for these animals. Large aquarium leaves like Indian almond, loquat, and jackfruit are preferred.
We recommend letting aquarium leaves and seed pods entirely break down into beneficial detritus. You can absolutely remove them after they don’t release tannins anymore, you just don’t get all potential benefits of leaving them in the aquarium.

We strongly recommend following the botanical preparation instructions. These instructions ensure that any 'potential contaminants' are removed if they find their way onto your leaves, bark, and seed pods.
My shipment came late at no fault of the seller and I expected the plants to die of from stress. To my surprise, they arrived unscathed and healthy! I would definitely buy from here again!
My salvinia arrived healthy and large and my shrimp are enjoying climbing all over them
My betta loves going into the long dense roots of these floaters to sleep and rest! They’re not a floater plant you se often either; definitely a cool factor!
