Horror Movie (is less than 15 characters)

David Attenborough on Victoria amazonica (aka Victoria regia).

(Species identity not stated explicitly in the video, so I had to infer it.)


Is the floating plant, water hyacinth?

Does it need Richard?

Oops - wrong brother.

I think it is water hyacinth.

So what controls Victoria? The film suggests all other flora is eliminated, but that’s not a sustainable situation in real life. I can see it happening in Kew Tropical house but the images show a mountain in the background which wasn’t there last time I was in Kew. Which, come to think of it, is far too long ago. Must get out more.

I agree the swollen one I think is water hyacinth, One of the others is water lettuce Buy water lettuce Pistia stratiotes in the Araceae!
