hi
I'm keeping this plant with my tylos. Does anyone know the proper conditions this plant needs in an aquarium cos every time I get it it produces smaller plants that produce even smaller plants...and in the end it dies.
Cheers

Francesco

Pistia is a high light plant (direct sun or its equivalent if possible) and is a heavy feeder. In medium to small enclosures it typically does not recieve sufficient food or light and produces smaller and smaller offshoots until it dies and falls apart.
