How does salvinia spread?
Im glad you asked, I work as a researcher on Salvinia Molesta. Salvinia is a floating plant it can get caught in motors from boats and other things the same. Salvinia spreads from cloning its self one tiny fragment of salvinia contains the genes for creating another plant. quite invasive, to have this plant without a permit is punishable by law.
