Riccia spec. ''Dwarf'', like Riccia, is a floating plant which can be
anchored to stones or roots with fishing line to keep it down. When the plant
grows well it develops into an unusual and attractive carpet. To prevent it from
becoming detached and floating to the top, it should be pruned from time to time
with scissors, and fastened down again occasionally. Riccia spec. ''Dwarf''
thrives best when CO2 is supplied (see also Riccia fluitans).
The origins of this plant are unknown.
