Azolla (mosquito fern, duckweed fern, fairy moss, water fern) is a genus of seven species of aquatic ferns in the family Salviniaceae. They are extremely reduced in form and specialized, looking nothing like other typical ferns but more resembling duckweed or some mosses.


NOTE: It is normal for its roots to fall off during shipping. We suggest putting the Azolla in a separate container first before adding it to your aquarium to let its roots fall to the bottom first.
