Looking for a unique floating plant for your Aquascape?

Amazon Frogbit Limnobium laevigatum is a beautiful floating aquatic plant that originates from Central and South America. It is also commonly known as Smooth frogbit, South American spongeplant, and Frogbit.

The plant features round green leaves with a velvety texture that feel very soft to the touch. These leaves are connected to the roots through long, thin stems that can grow up to 20cm in length and make the plant look like a tiny lily pad. Amazon Frogbit is an excellent option for people looking to add natural elements to their aquariums.
