What has been your exsperience with it? Does it grow rapidly?

It grows like mad, forming almost pillows of Azolla, and covering the water surface quickly. When I had it, I had to thin it out two or three times a week so the rooted plants below it could get light.

Believe me, Azolla will grow for you. And it is part of the fern family, but where the 'skeeter' part comes from escapes me.

Ive experimented with azolla. Just a few can turn into hundreds in two weeks time
