 I have been growing Riccia for 5 years and never seen this happen. Maybe you
 got a little java moss mixed up with your Riccia!

I just ran out of CO2 last week and didn't get anymore for about a week and 
that's exactly what happened. Some of it bubbled and some of it turned 
brownish green and didn't bubble, it just looked ugly. I got a refill and 
everythings bright green now. Maybe you're not dosing enough CO2 or not 
meeting some other condition. Dosing KNO3 seems to help because the riccia 
seems to eat it up super fast.
