I have attached this to wood which is submerged,with netting.I’m led to believe I can’t remove the netting as the plant won’t attach.
Has anyone had dealings with riccia?How long does it grow if I didn’t cut it?

It grows to about 4-6cm tall, depending upon water conditions.
You're right in that it's one of those that needs tying to things...or using as a floating plant, either on the surface, or just loose in the water column..

Thanks for the reply Bruce.
The riccia seemed inert for the first couple of weeks,but it’s beginning to grow now and must be around a cm tall.
Hopefully it will thicken up too,if only to hide the netting,which was an onion bag (well washed)but it’s red in colour.
I wouldn’t want to risk floating it,there’s a filter intake a couple of inches below the surface.Once it has grown to length and there’s enough of it,I shall attach it along the wood.

Limes often come in a nice green netting. ;)
