Riccia fluitans – Crystalwort – 2inch x 2inch portion
Riccia fluitans, also known as Crystalwort, is a beautiful plant. It is by nature a floating plant, but many people, including myself, like to tie it to driftwood, rocks, or aquarium decorations with thread or better yet, fishing line. If this plant is not tied down, then it will float. Please understand what Riccia is before you buy, as some people think it is a plant that is one piece and gets planted in the substrate, which is not the case.

To get that terrific lawn look, all you need to do is tie Riccia to mesh with fishing line, thread, or you can use a net ( scrunchies make a great net and are cheap). You then lay the mesh on your substrate with anchors holding it down. Here is a video on tying Riccia to a rock. It is the same procedure for the mesh.
Riccia grows very quickly under high light with CO2 but also does excellent with moderate light and no CO2.
