Having trouble finding any to buy or swap. I'm in Los Angeles, CA area, zone 10. Also interested in how you grow yours.

    Mine just grows in a pond. The stems float and produce lots of roots at the leaf nodes. It's very easy and seems to get enough nutrients from the fish in there.

    Get a bunch from the Asian market. Any cuttings from that will quickly sprout roots. The Vietnamese markets should have them. Some of my neighbors grow them in baby pools filled with dirt. They grow fast!
