I spied the green stuff that grows in our creek from my deck today so I went down and grabbed some off the opposite bank. It's not duckweed. It looks a lot like baby tears but I know that's not native to NJ. Any ideas? I have a pic of what it looks like growing by the bank and an up close pic.
The bright green clump along the bank dead center in the pic is the plant.
And here it is in a bucket! It lost it's pretty clumping when I pulled it up. I'm hoping a week in the bucket will help get it's shape back.
