i grows just as nearly as fast as normal duckweed so its hardly a difficult plants its just not really well known i had some years back i got from a local lake (now filled in)its dont think its native to the uk freezing temps will kill it
its a really nice looking plant compared to the other lemma species and dosent simply cover the surface but grows in a busy mass below the surface

if ever get hold of this plant id be happy to share

Hmm, I just had a hunt around and can't find it either - it's a pretty awesome looking plant. If either of you manage to locate it could you let me know? I fancy getting some too

I've been on a Google and eBay frenzy.. can't find a single listing in the UK except for an ad that was posted in 2006! I found two listings under the name of Lemna trisulca on eBay. One was duckweed, the other in the US

You might try contacting Stapeley water gardens, Bennetts waterlily Farm, Shirley Aquatics...

I would have thought they would be familiar with Lemna trisulca as its fairly common to aquatic habitats and pond keeping

Which reminds me, its one of the few aquatic plant varieties I haven't tried here, hmmm though bladderwort tends to occupy that niche, here...
