Watermeal is common in stagnant and slow moving waters. From
time to time waterfowl may consume watermeal. Watermeal is often
used as camouflage cover for fish, amphibians, reptiles, etc.
Watermeal is often misidentified as algae or "green pond scum."
Watermeal can easily cover the entire pond, especially when little
or no wind is present. Wolffia continues to germinate all season
adding to its persistent nature.
Watermeal is a very tiny (less than 1 millimeter) light green
free-floating, rootless plant. In fact, watermeal is the smallest
seed-bearing plant in the world. Watermeal tend to grow in dense
colonies in quiet water, undisturbed by wave action. Watermeal is
often found growing with duckweeds or mosquito fern.
