As usual, I have learned quite a bit from this list on a subject about 
which very little is available in the literature.  Sounds like Riccia will 
indeed not stay put on wood, underwater, without both restraint and 
diligent trimming.  I simply tied mine down and let it grow and it promptly 
grew right off the wood.  I will try the "trimming once a week method" to 
keep the growth short, therefore keeping the pieces of plant that _are_ 
attached to the wood with fishing line alive.  If this doesn't work, guess 
it's back to bare wood.  Thanks for all the help.
