Near dead Riccia


My LFS owner bought a mat of Riccia for a show tank he was setting up and threw it in one of his low tech low light tanks that he usually keeps plants in. A couple weeks later it has just a few tiny bits of green left on it. I took it home for free and threw it in my high tech settup with high light and around 30ppm CO2 and good ferts. Do you think I can revive it? I have always wanted to try to grow some riccia rocks.

yep in my experience all riccia needs is light and at least some nutrients. It will grow quickly if you have it floating
