Got some more Water Hyicinths (which is a good thing). [Smile] The other 2 I would like more info on, if possible? I got a realy small Frogbit. Never heard of it. It's kinda like a teeny-weeny Hyicinths. The other in Water Lettuce. Can these keep in cold Massachusetts weather & how? TIA [Smile]

Yvette,
Hi! [wayey]
I don't know anything about Frogbit. Water lettuce and hyacinths are hard to over winter. Most people treat them as annuals and compost after the frost hits. They are tropical plants. I have tried to over-winter lettuce and hyacinths and the hyacinths molded then died. The lettuce made it but they stayed smaller the next year. They need warm water and a lot of bright light.

Hope this helps.
