Right now, if anyone's in/near CA, I brought with me some Susswassertang
duckweed and salvinia.
Susswassertang is a hardy plant in the fern family. It looks like seaweed and attaches to objects over time.*
I haven't killed any yet and it grows really fast (fast for what it is) in my window side tank. I've even left one in a jar for two months with two snails and no food. Although it hasn't grown, it has died either.
Doesn't take well to frequent waterchanges...
Fun fact: Susswassertang is a male gametophyte of a fern... :O forever missing its female counterpart it seems ;)
I'm hoping to have glosso and giant baby tears available in September.
I just did a little research on the specific scientific name of my plants.
I do NOT have giant duckweed, or giant salvinia. Mo is partially correct, the giant varieties Salvinia Molesta and Spirodela polyrhiza are often illegal.
The variety of duckweed I have is the butterfly shaped, called Lemna minor and is infact native to Carlifornia
Probably... Knowing California lol. I supposedly have an illegal plant, not sure if it is true or not... I have never put any plants down the drain, besides duckweed which I have found in the wild when I went on vacation. I always throw them in the trash and allow them to dry.
