Floating Water Plantain Luronium natans Floating water-plantain occurs in a range of freshwater situations, including nutrient-poor lakes in the uplands and slowly-flowing lowland rivers, pools, ditches and canals that are moderately nutrient-rich. It thrives best in open situations with a moderate degree of disturbance, where the growth of emergent vegetation is held in check.
