With CO2, high light, and a good ferts it grows extremely fast. Even with moderate light and no CO2 it still grows fairly fast. It could overtake the moss if it doesn't float away (floating plant by nature).

So I should take that out then since I have the high light, c02, and ferts. so it doesn't take over my moss.

I'd say it would be a good idea to take it out, but that is just my opinion. Otherwise it will get caught up in other places. It is nice to grow in some setups though.

Or you can place it in another rock. It looks very beautiful as it pearls like no tomorrow.

My day is better whenever I buy a new plant.

Re: Mystery Plant

So that tiny little piece will grow out? It was pearling just just sitting in the moss.

riccia will grow faster than your moss, if you mix it w/ moss ... later will look very messy.

Oh yes. I had some piggyback in unseen, probably back in December, and I've picked out ten plus dime-size pieces from my e.belem carpet in the last two weeks.
