Azolla is a native Australian water plant and we use it widely in our gardens (just be careful it can’t escape to waterways as it can clog still waters). Its very simple to grow. Find a sunny spot, a water holding vessel and seed with a few azolla. It will quickly colonise the water surface so periodic removal is necessary to allow oxygen transfer to the water (about 50% surface cover is great). It makes excellent garden mulch.
