Hydrilla, The Perfect But Complex Aquatic Weed
Perfect weed: how can any weed be called perfect? That perfect weed is hydrilla (Hydrilla verticillata). It is called perfect because it has many methods of reproducing itself and it grows so well in so many different aquatic circumstances. It is complex because mostly it is very destructive to the environment but in some cases can actually be helpful. For itself, it might be perfect, but for us it can be a disaster.

Hydrilla is easily the most invasive exotic aquatic plant in Florida and is now found in 80% of Florida Lakes.  It is a problem in southeastern states, but also as far north as Maine, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Washington DC, Indiana, and Iowa while in the far west it also grows in Oregon, California and Arizona.

Invasive and Now Not - July 1st marked the end of a ban on the use of felt-soled waders in order to prevent the spread of a type of algae called “rock snot.” The algae were thought to be invasive in the Northeast, but researchers have now concluded the aquatic algae are in fact native to the northern United States.
