    Anyone need any? I've got tons and tons and to... well you get the idea. I can stuff a lot into a small box (you pay postage).

    Oh my gosh -- it's so cute!

    Can you tell me about growing situation? Potted or not? How deep below surface should it be planted? I probably don't have any room - but IT'S SO CUTE!

    It grows all over. It's invasive here but not in other places. I've got it growing in my bog, free floating in the pond just anchored in a corner, and growing up the side of my waterfall. Lol
    Since you've got similar conditions as I do, I'd keep it in a pot at first and see how it spreads.

    Not ideal for Southern ponds. I have had dealings with its larger cousin....Dollar Weed. Highly invasive. If you don't get all of the roots when removing it, it will return.

    @Meyer Jordan aren't they the same thing?
    And yes, invasive where I am.

    at least in the bog it's pretty easy to yank out (unless it got stuck in between irises's roots, grrr) I found another clump the other day and just yank them out and gave to the ducks.. they love it!!

    oh, can it'll grow big and tall, cover your other smaller plants... some leaves are 3 inches across!!

    BUT.... it's good for you, very rich in vitamin and strengthen your brain against Alzheimer.

    Does it really? The thought of eating that kinda grosses me out though, I don't know how many times Fathead has peed on it, or Calvin has thrown up on it... Lol

    I had it here one summer, never came back the next summer. It is pretty, it does spread, like all the other plants I have they grow every where, bog, pond, dirt..............

    Now I'm worried I'm passing off dollar weed instead of the pennywort. Like I'm the shady guy down the block selling replica pennywort... :shifty::shifty::shifty::shifty:

    Yes, it is edible, but I think that you may need to eat a considerable amount daily to keep its growth in check. Dollarweed, penny wort and all of the other many members of the Hydrocotyle genus are considered noxious weeds especially in an aquatic environment.

    @Meyer Jordan hydrocotyle isn't considered a noxious weed as a whole im pretty sure. There is all kinds, and most are difficult to care for. Maybe natively they are invasive naturally but not on a introduced scale. Would be interested in seeing that though.
    Im probably wrong but I would like to see where you got that from? I know hydrocotyle umbellate is noxious weed.

    Probably because it's so invasive down here.

    Talk with any Lawn Service company, especially in the Southern tier of states.

    That was pennywort and dollarweed, what about all the other types of hydrocotyle, that's what I meant.
