Spring—Native to tropics, common salvinia rarely overwinters in TVA system to continue growth in spring.Most plants are introduced annually from water gardens or isolated warm water areas. Others, like Salvinia minima, can be very fast-growing. Upper surfaces of green fronds are covered with rows of white, bristly hairs (papillae) (Mitchell 1972), which divide into four thin branches that soon rejoin at the tips to form a cage. Reproduction is strictly vegetative as spores are sterile (Mitchell 1979). Flores, D. and J.W. Nelson, M.J. Grodowitz, R.M. Created on 10/23/2009. Aquatic Botany 17:71-83. 2009.

Salvinia minima , a fast growing free-floating fern found in tropical and temperate regions, was chosen for the present study based on its ability to tolerate high hexavalent chromium concentrations [31] . You should never dump any aquatic plants into local water bodies, and always clean your fishing gear and boat when moving between locations.--A. http://www.shreveporttimes.com (accessed on 14 April 2008). † Populations may not be currently present. Salvinia molesta is strictly a freshwater species, not tolerating brackish or marine environments. Keener, B. R., A.R. Tree 5(3):74-79. 2011. Once established in a new region, the plant is likely spread as a hitchhiker on boats, trailers and other recreational gear. 1972. Salvinia's growth, expressed as frond production and plant fresh weight doubling time, was significantly increased with increasing nitrogen concentration from 1.0 mg/1 to 100.0 mg/1 in the growth media. Its growth rate decreases by 25% at a salinity level of 0.3%. Mitchell, D.S. Griffiths. Bister, T.J., and M.W. Rucker, J. Accessed on 12/04/2015. Like dense floating mats of waterhyacinth, dense floating mats of S. molesta support secondary colonizing plants, leading to the formation of floating islands or tussocks (McFarland et al. Johnson, D. 1995. 1972. A review of the biology of giant salvinia (Salvinia molesta Mitchell). This characteristic eggbeater structure can reliably distinguish S. molesta from the morphologically similar S. minima that has unjoined hairs (Wunderlin and Hansen 2011). 2010. The upper surface of the floating leaves are covered in hairs that repel water. EDDMapS: Early detection and distribution mapping system. 1980). Salvinia minima has a history of being sold in the nursery trade, and is still widely available on the internet in spite of its invasive nature (Forno et al. 2010. Vegetative reproduction, rapid growth rates and dispersion by humans and flooding are major factors in the formation of dense mats of this weed. Florida Museum of Natural History.

McFarland, D.G., L.S. The section is now dynamically updated from the NAS database to ensure that it contains the most current and accurate information. Impact of Introduction: During earlier stages of colonization Salvinia minima demonstrates exponential growth rates (Gaudet, 1973), which may be just as high as those of Salvinia molesta. 1987. Although subtle differences have been found among the members of the group, sporocarps are generally needed to tell these species apart (Forno 1983; Mitchell 1972). Salvinia minima is a species of aquatic, floating fern that float on the surface of still waterways. Best to grow them in partial shade and not direct sunlight. 2008a.

Flores and Carlson (2006) noted a 2.5 fold increase in dissolved oxygen by removing 90% of S. molesta at five east Texas sites. Decomposing plant material drops to the bottom, consuming dissolved oxygen needed by fish and other aquatic life (Divakaran et al. Mitchell, D.S. Any efforts towards management of salvinia populations Salvinia molesta belongs to a group of closely related Neotropical species that share the feature of eggbeater type hairs (Mitchell 1972; Mitchell 1979).
