somewhatshocked wicca27: Azolla is all over the place in your area.

Azolla caroliniana is even plentiful in Louisville.

Indian fern GAAD! Duckweed and azolla are very prolific. I place goldfishes for a while and after one to two days. It's gone. They eat it like salad. )

ADJAquariums Ahh duckweed... I can think of many things to call it, and surprisingly one of them is useful, but i can take over if left unchecked. Crazy plant in my opinion, lives when you dont want it to, doesnt when you do

Time to start scooping!

Started as a few hitchhikers on the water lettuce
