Some info:
"Does Riccia have rhizoids that serve as an anchor of sorts?" **If** this is
so, I have not found that they "stick" much to anything. I guess "attaching"
could be seen as in ""attaching with fishing line" but the plant doesn't
"attach" like say a Java fern or Anubias. I haven't seen any Riccia specific
info on rhizoids and their appearance on Riccia specifically. Just
liverworts generally. Anyone know?
