Description Check Your Winter-Hardiness Zone

As the common name suggests, the leaves, like the land based "sensitive plant", close when they are touched.  The floating (mature) stems of this tropical plant are covered in white, spongy tissue, full of air cells.  

Set the plant out after the pond water has reached 70 F.  Should be planted in soil, allowing the stems to lay on the surface of the water.  However, the stems can also be floated on the water surface, with less dramatic results.

Sold as rooted or un-rooted cuttings (un-rooted early in the season) - minimum of 8" to 10" long.

Full sun to part shade.  
USDA Zones 9 and 10.
Additional Product Information

Winter Plant Shipping Note:
Due to colder weather that may be present in your area, all plant orders purchased between January 1st and mid-March are purchased with the understanding that they will be held for shipment at a later, more weather appropriate time for your area. We start shipping plants to the south (first), but sometime after March 15th. This date is not set in stone as the actual weather at the time we ship your plants determines when we can ship your order. We encourage you to request an appropriate shipping date for your area (when you place your order), or we will ship them at what we determine is the appropriate time for your area. We ship plants according to your USDA Plant Hardiness Zone, but will not be held responsible for late frosts or freezes in your area.

Plant Shipping Note:
Plants cannot be shipped with dry goods and must be ordered separately. All plants are shipped via USPS Priority Mail ONLY and most Dry Goods are shipped via UPS Ground service. Therefore you must choose the USPS Priority Mail option to ship your plants, and the UPS Ground service option to ship your dry goods.

Prohibited Plants in Your Area:
The list of states where certain pond plants are prohibitted for sale in continues to grow. Please Do Not remove plants that are grown in the wild. Please keep all purchased pond plants confined to your pond, only. Do not release them into natural waterways or other bodies of water.

Before buying your plants, click on our "Prohibited Plant List", to see if the plants you want are permitted in your state.
