Riccia is grown floating or attached to hardscape. Initially popularized by Takashi Amano, Riccia is a very versatile aquascaping plant and can be used to create a softening or cloud effect when intermingled with other plants. Riccia can be easily trimmed and grown from any sized trimming or piece. This plant can grow very fast and is easier to grow with CO2 injection. Mixing Riccia in with other plants around the base of hardscape objects or mixing it into midground or foreground bushy or stemmy plants creates an excellent softening effect.
