Greger L. offered the idea of Marsilea hirsuta as a nice foreground plant
and more user friendly alternative to Glossostigma elatinoides. He also
wrote an article on Marsilea for a Swedish Web site:
I enjoyed the photos, Greger...wish I knew Swedish.
M. hirsuta does indeed have a Glosso vibe in its immersed form. This is a
plant I would definitely like to try. I've also been on the lookout for
Marsilea minuta, which I think is an Asian native. Does anyone know where
M. hirsuta or M. minuta can be purchased in the US? I've found M. minuta
at a wholesaler in California, but they won't sell to the public.
