It is illegal to sell in Florida and several other States that have adopted
the Federal aquatic weed laws. You have probably heard about Hydrilla and
the problems it has caused to lakes and canals. The same was starting to
happen in Florida with polysperma....apparently due to stuff that
accidentally made its way into the local canals from plants grown by the
Florida plant industry.
