Water Sprite (Ceratopteris thalictroides)
Water Sprite is often confused with Water Wisteria, while the two can look similar they are entirely different species. Water sprite can be planted in the substrate or it can be floated. It has a tendency to grow very fast and it is very easy to grow and propagate.
Our Water Sprite is grown in house! They are sold by the individual small to medium sized bare root plant. They can grow to be quite large in a relatively short amount of time so give them some space to grow in!
Photos shown are for illustration purposes only. Plants vary in size and leaf morphology. Roots may range in color, this is normal.
- This species can be fragile, handle with care.
- If planting into the substrate, plant the roots only, leave the crown on top of the substrate.
- Alternatively, this plant can be floated and grows very well this way.
- Cut leaves will typically produce new plants when left floating in the water. So don't throw away cut leaves!
Difficulty - Easy
Fertilizers - Liquid fertilizer and nutrient rich substrate or root tabs recommended
Light Requirements - Low to High
