Duckweed Gardening 2012 Review

December 30, 2012

A humble, yet big thank you to my readers from around the globe. To those of you who commented on duckweed and DIYing, a double thank you, as you helped guide my thoughts and gave me new challenges to tackle. May your new year be rich with a sense of wonder.


Here’s an excerpt:

4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 15,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 3 Film Festivals

    On the very last day of this year, I found some semi-local, accessible duckweed. I was hoping for Lemna when I saw it from a distance, but alas, it appears to be Wolffia. But there’s a lot of it. Can’t be choosy, I guess.

    Thanks for the website, Tamra!

      Sue, hooray for the find! On New Year’s Eve, no less… Take a good look at your sample. You may find a bit of Lemna minor or Spirodela here and there. Either one may accelerate growth and crowd out the Wolffia as nutrients and weather temps play their part in the scenario of “Domination of the Duckweed Pond.” You can always hedge your bets by segregating out the Lemna or Spirodela and growing them separately. I’ve got entire wading pools that were bioprospected and ID’d as Wolffia. When the cooler weather arrived, Lemna minor began growing like mad and now I can’t find ANY Wolffia in those ponds.

      Happy New Year to you, my friend. May your life be filled with contentment, laughter, and a bit of adventure.
