Description

Duckweed is our smallest floating pond plant. The leaves are a bright lime green and only reach less than 1/8 inch in diameter. Fish love to eat Duckweed, so it is wise to grow some in a separate container to have a ready supply on hand to treat your koi and pond fish to a "salad" on occasion. Duckweed is made up of many tiny plants, so it is sold as a pint size portion.

    Healthy "salad" for goldfish containing high protein and minerals. I keep some growing at all times in a separate net covered shallow container (covered to keep small animals from falling in.)
