Does anyone out there have good luck growing this plant?
[Ken Wintin] Jeff,
First of all there is considerable debate as to whether it is Nitella, or
Chara. I call what I have Chara rigida, it seems to grow really well under
a lot of conditions. It doesn't seem to like very low mineral content,
though, and I have had to add considerable CO2 to get it to thrive in soft
water. I can send you a little if you will email me at
