Soldiering On  

Water soldier (Stratiotes aloides), an aquatic plant species native to Europe, has escaped ponds and aquariums to invade Canada's Trent River. Treatment is underway on the more than 20,000 plants that have been found so far.

I am amazed at how many aquatic invasive plant species come from water gardens and aquariums. I am puzzled as to why we don' go to the source and ban plants that are not native and have to potential to be invasive.
