Threestamen waterwort, Elatine triandra, is a small creeping plant that is widely distributed from the temperate to the tropical climate zone: from Northern America over Europe, Asia and Australia to New Zealand. . In nature, E. triandra is predominantly a pioneer plant growing on bare loam soils in ponds, rivulets and rice paddies that fall dry periodically and are often rather low in nutrients. ,. Elatine triandra is rare in Germany, and its populations are receding. It is threatened by intensified pond-farming and the eutrophication of waterbodies. .
Those plants of Elatine triandra sold in trade probably originate from Asia.
