DescriptionAzolla is a common free-floating fern up to 10 to 30 millimeters in diameter with roots hanging down to about 40 millimeters below the water surface. Azolla fronds float on the surface of the water individually or as large mats. The plant supports nitrogen fixing bacterium, which allows it to use nitrogen from the water and air for its own growth. The occurrence of a vigorously growing population of azolla in a farm dam generally indicates high nutrient levels in the water. Azolla can survive within a water Ph range of 3.5 To 10, but optimum growth occurs in the Ph range of 4.5 To 7 and temperature range of 18°C to 26°C. Under optimum conditions, azolla’s growth spreads across the dam surface until it covers the surface of the water in a dense cover. Azolla can double its leaf area in seven days if conditions of high nutrient levels and water temperatures persist.
