Fairy Moss Azolla caroliniana

Fairy Moss is another plant that Koi love to eat. The tiny leaves can be green or reddish to dark reddish brown. Sunlight and water temperature determines the color of the plant.

ABOUT the color, fairy moss can vary in color from moss green to reddish brown.  The color will change from time to time depending on the temperature and the amount of sun light.  It is not uncommon to see both brownish red and moss green in a shipment or ONE solid color.

NOTE: most do not grow this in the pond but grow it outside of the pond in large containers to grow to feed it to their fish.  If you have a skimmer this plants will very likely end up in the skimmer unless you have fish that eat it quickly.  My own guys get 3 pounds a few times a week.

Hardy zone 8 or higher

This plant is illegal in TX and LA and can not be shipped to those states!
