A shop at Farmart sells it for $1/- to $2/- per packet. After that you can culture your own duckweed.

Thanks for the info bros. What do you guys do to make sure the duckweed is clean enough for your fish consumption? Always wanted to try but hesitate because worried about contamination.

Thanks CP, when you first get the duckweed, I expect that the water it is in may have parasites/bacteria etc. So what do you normally do, just wash clean and feed? Or do you sterilize first eg, with PP solution ?

How you wash duckweed? if you are concern about the source then PP would take them out.

ok the initial source of duckweed can be disinfected with pp(up to 16ppm no problem)Subsequently leave some excess to seed further production within the same water source.Parasites need hosts to survive also ,so if there is no fish host wtihin a water source for a period,parasites would not survive as well except through encysting themselves.


Without Sun no duckweed can flourish,needless to add that water is essential.Need I go to spell out the requirements of germination of seed and plant ie water,warmth and air to complete the list of requirements Matrix!

Please enlighten me. I thought a few fishes will keep the Ministry of Enviroment away?
Also to provide fertilizer?

Thanks,
