Riccia is a fast growing plant. The problem with it is that as it grows, the parts that are tied down will be shaded. They will eventually die away and the result is that the riccia will come loose.

Amano deals with this in several ways. He first ties it down using monofilament line. He will also plant hair grass in between the riccia and tie the hair grass blades in order to form a mat over the riccia. He then trims religiously in order to keep the riccia from shading itself.

I hope that helps.
