    It's a noxious weed in CA.
    I have about 40 experimental tubs full of it.

    It needs space/room to grow and sometimes needs a transitional grow in peroid.

    Folks in warmer regions need to be aware it is a bad weed.

    Regards,

    Thanks Tom, but until a couple of weeks ago it was growing really well, now its slowed down growing and the leaves are still falling apart, I was getting a 30-40% coverage a week on the tank and keeping about 10% nothing has changed in what I am doing and stats are all ok

    Isn't frogbit like posh duckweed. I've got the common duckweed in my tank and that's almost unkillable.

    Do now Paul. Also Greg appears to have lost the detailed drawings of the CO2 reactor, just when I'm about to build one.

    BTW where's the frogbit in your photo? Looking good though. :D
