About This Product

Four Leaf Clover Dwarf Marsilea crenata is a dwarf clover plant which adds diversity with its clover shaped leaves. Depending upon our current inventory, this plant may or may not have been grown immersed. When you receive it, (if it has not already been done by our nursery) you must cut it off level with the top of the pot. It will then quite quickly regrow it's submerged leaves, which are much smaller.
NOTE: with the correct growing conditions, you will see regrowth in less than 3 days.

    Marsilea tripartita

    Plant was healthy, a good size, and well packed. Unfortunately, it was infested withd duck weed, and it melted once I put it in the aquarium. It is beginning to grow back now.

    Is it good?

    Posted by Nate Blumenthal on Jul 16th 2016

    Im a new to the whole "Natural Aquarium" thing, ive done so much research on how to maintain and take care of my plants! (I only have a few, hairgrass/dwarf hairgrass) I was wondering if this plant is also easy to grow, or is it good for a beginner? I don't have Co2 in my tank currently but I probably will in the late future.

    Awesome little plant!

    Posted by Unknown on Apr 19th 2016

    I bought a few of these for my sons tank and they are cute little plants. I trimmed them back a bit before planting and within a couple days new tiny clovers were coming up and they're shooting out runners everywhere. These are surprisingly hardy little plants. The substrate in the tank is dirt with sand and i did put some root tabs in there. I do not have CO2 hooked up to this tank and the lighting is nothing fancy, just a national geographic brand led light. Hope this helps anyone interested in this plant.

    Four Leaf Clover Dwarf - Marsilea hirsuta (2" pots

    Posted by Julie Weis on Aug 22nd 2011

    I really like these little four leaf clovers, although they look nothing like the picture on the website. They look like little four leaf clovers. They arrived in good shape and seem to be aclimating nicely. About 1/8th of the little clovers turned brown (likely due to shipping stress), but new clovers are growing. One pot was very generous with the plant the other one not so much.

    Great Plant, But...

    Posted by Elizabeth on Jan 10th 2011

    I love this plant and would have easily given it 5 stars except for one thing... the plants I received were grown emersed (out of water) instead of submersed. Their picture is of the submersed form, but when I received them they were in the four leafed form. Plants like this must, of course, die back before growing in aquatic form. Another reviewer said they died within 48 hours; it is likely that the plant itself did not die but all of the leaves that had been growing out of water had to die off so it could grow aquatic foliage. Mine have all done that, leaving me with quite a mess in my aquarium. This is certainly something that should be disclosed on the page, as well as photos of the emersed form you will receive versus the submersed form that it will grow into.
