One of the decomposition bundles with hyacinth and a plastic label... which hopefully won't disapear.

A string of several bundles, each string has six bundles attached with zip-ties.

Another photo of the experimental set-up. You may notice more water.

I placed little bundles of dead Eichhornia and Neptunia on a string and then attached the strings to my competition enclosures.  This will allow me to estimate decomposition of these two plants in artificial mats that vary in the density of the two plant species.

You might notice that the water is getting deeper – it’s over the first barb wire, which makes it difficult to slide through the fence.  I may yet have to construct a door…
