    When I was touring Thailand these plants were so thick you couldn’t see the water and almost looked like you could walk on them.

    Water hyacinth filters the water from pollution and there are fish dependent on this plant.

    I have a pond and it grows there. It can be used as dried fertilizer in plantation or cultivate hybrid magur catfish who eats these things

    Did you know that Hebbal, Bellandur Agram & Madiwala lakes had plenty of them & they would keep it from frothing unlike now- wonder why the National Green tribunal or Honourable High Court of Karnataka did not take notice of this??

    Removes metals from the water and also one of the best vegetable sources of methane, which might be a bad thing if you're not collecting it.

    Nature never produces useless things ...every thing that it grows has got some great purpose behind it . Just because our knowledge is limited about it , doesn't counts it useless or harm full . Mother nature know how to take care and use of it's products . Dear Humans you can't out smart Mother nature 🌱
