Commentsseveral photos uploaded to the following imgur album http://imgur.com/a/ZhPmn identified by a user on reddit.com/r/whatisthisplant I'm looking for the best way to remove this from our pond and have ordered Cattplex on a recommendation, however, i'm not sure it will be effective against this plant. If there is a better pesticide or better yet a non-pesticide solution you could suggest it would be appreciated. ; EDDMapS report
