Water Snowball (Gymnocoronis spilanthoides)

Water Snowball is a leafy plant with thick stalks, not like typical submerged plants. The stalks are filled with air. If submerging water snowball we recommend it being planted, so that it won't float. Since water snowball easily floats it makes for a great floating plant as well. When grown floating or planted, so that stalks are growing up above the water level, water snowball will grow fragrant snowball like flowers in the summer months. These flowers are known for attracting Monarch butterflies during their fall migration.

Note: Water snowball will grow too tall for covered aquariums.

Planting Instructions: For ponds we recommend planting in small baskets with pea gravel or small pots with a clay based soil. While water snowball can be left free floating or weighted to the bottom of a pond, it will be more cold tolerant if planted.
