Hey Ao, I think my duckweed is dead....
I thought it was doing well in the cup I put it in, but i noticed that it doesn't even really float anymore...and it hasn't been multiplying in the least bit. I feel like I'm losing more than I'm getting.

Is ther something I should do?

:O put what you have in buddhas tank...
might be the water :/ I dot think duckweed likes clean water.
if it does die let me know and I'll ship you some more for free when mine multiplies out again.

I didnt know you can kill the stuff... I accodentally buried some and one is up against the tranparent wall in the container under the soil. its been three weeks and its still green...lemme take photo

edit: added photo



can you take a photo...? It might actually be the salvinia that died..

Umm I just attempted to get the pic, and it didn't work :<

It's too small and light for my camera to get it.

It's literally, like, see through and it doesn't look anything like your duckweed in the pic :<

Sounds almost like it melted. Did it have enough light? My salvinia melts if it doesn't get enough light.

Yup, I put it in water by the window as soon as I got it.

It could be possible that it just died while in transit. It did take an extra day or two for it to get here because of our UPS delay...
