The water hyacinth is considered an exotic plant, but is very invasive. It’s actually illegal to transport or sell them in certain states in the US since they have invaded entire lakes. They grow quickly, and can double in population within 2 weeks. Ultimately, their invasiveness causes them to completely deplete the oxygen from the water and kill off all fish and aquatic life.
I have a couple in my fish tank, which I use to help filter nitrates. Here are some photos of their most recent flowers.
next time, you should pick the flowers and press them. and then give me the pressed flowers.
the flowers only bloomed for one day. it was short lived.
yeah, that's why you should press them for chipmunks. ^_-
i will next time! the window of opportunity is so small though…
