I think Hobbyists imported it, and it just grew very well for them.
any aquarium plant can become common if it grows well :)

Susswassertang is a low light plants, although it grows slowly, it can survive under pretty much any condition. so it's become more common.

Susswassertang doesn't grow anywhere near as fast as Riccia, Sinks as oppose to how riccia floats and tend to stay in one clump rather than getting everywhere :)

I just recently added some and you're right...it is extremely annoying! Everytime I need to put anything in the water the stuff sticks to it when I take it out! It is the cutest little plant I have in my tank though, its so small and roots/bottom of the plant looks so soft and cuddly at the surface of the water! I thought my betta would like it to build bubble nests under but so far, nothing :(
