Does anyone currently grow mini riccia? If so, then please private message me. I would love to purchase and/or trade for some. I'd really really appreciate it.

Thank you.

Thank you for the offer Rex, but I do have regular riccia. Hehehe. Yeah, I've only heard of this plant recently. :biggrin: Apparently, it has been "out there" for a while but has never gained any notoriety, not unlike Ammania sp. 'Bonsai' and Eusteralis verticillata.

The mini riccia is, like its namesake, a miniature version of regular Riccia fluitans. After doing some research, hobbyists describe it as "more refined", "mossy", and "slower growing" than regular riccia. Sounds exciting.

Here is a pictorial comparison of the two forms. And here is a photo from the Plant Finder:



So does anyone have this nifty liverwort?

I'm looking for some too!

CS, if I find some I'll let you know. I remember seeing people selling these on aquaticquotient but they are all international.

There was some at the 2002 AGA auction, but I don't remember who got it or what happened to it.

The plant is featured on the Tropica web site too.

30 Malaysian ringit is probably about 8-9 bucks USD. Hmm. Is it true that there are south east asian hobbyist who sell plants on aqubid regardless of importation rules/regulation?

About 6 months ago I traded with a guy in Singapore some 12 inche stainless steel tweezers for 2 tiny portions of Xmas moss and erect moss.

Not sure how he filled out his custom papers but the tiny envelope came over just fine and both mosses lived and have grown nice for me.

Only thing I did for him was mark it as a gift. Granted that was for Singapore but it went well. He sold the stuff on Aquabid a few times too.

Not sure if that helps but since the stuff does not have roots and plant is completely exposed, might be worth a try. I know I paid like $9 to air express or something to him. Not sure what he spent to get it to me. But I had some neat looking stamps on the tiny envelope!

I am going to have to send you a picture because I swear my riccia is the smaller version. Each "plant"never gets longer than 3/4 of an inch and it never develops into large mats like others rather a small 1" matt.
