Officials Document Water Hyacinth in Kerala since 1914
Water hyacinth is a free floating aquatic plant that is native to South America. One of the fastest growing plants known, water hyacinth can double their population in two weeks. When not controlled, the aquatic plant will cover lakes and ponds entirely, dramatically affecting water flow, blocking sunlight from native aquatic plants and starves the water of oxygen, often killing fish and turtles.

Within a couple of months a pamphlet is created to pass along to the government to take notice of this dangerous plant and discussions for its removal commence.
