Salvinia natans - Floating watermoss
This plant is made up of small hairy green leaves floating on the surface. Salvinia are not hardy and can be burnt by cold wings.
It makes a very attractive plant in shallow bowls with a little soil and kept in a warm, light position.
Great replacement for water hyacynth which can no longer be sold in the UK
