> Hello all,

I pulled out all my Riccia about a year ago, and am STILL finding pieces
where a single atom of the stuff managed to take root and grow.  Its kind of
like java moss that way.  If you don't like it invading the glossostigma,
pull out what you think is unattractive and leave the rest in.  You will be
fighting a battle long term, but the results can really be worth it.
