Re: riccia

Claus Christensen gave a very interesting talk on Riccia at the NEC a
couple months ago (probably did the same one for the SFBAPS).  There will be
a couple paragraphs of notes I took on this in the latest TAG (which just
got printed).  He mentioned that he's gotten at least 10 varieties of the
stuff, ranging from "fat" to "spindly" growing.  I'm pretty sure he
said something about them having different floating properties as well.
Didn't say anything about them rooting themselves :), but definitely
confirmed what Tom mentions: he showed slides of them getting wedged into
things and growing mid-water in the wild.<<

That does sound interesting. I kinda wish I caught his lecture...so I guess
Dave G will be selling these riccias for $100 a pound right? :) Tropica may
be expensive, but I have to admitt getting nurseries to properly identify
and even recognize what they are selling in this country is a real chore to
say the least.
