    Ron, There are scientific papers on the allelopathy of some liverworts but mostly from the horticultural establishment they are regarded as a nuisance but do no damage. They are primary colonists and some do and can only grow where there is already no competition. I suppose that quite often it's a chicken and egg question.


    This plant I've keyed out as Lunularia cruciata. The crescent shaped gemmae pot is to the right and several loose gemmae are evident in the centre of the frame. I'm still checking out the identity of the plants pictured above. This bryology lark can make the brain hurt when you're not used to having so many species to look at.

    Here's a separate planting of Marchantia polymorpha ( purchased off ebay some months ago, mainly because it was there) showing the still covered gemmae pots.

    Mine grows on the potting medium that my utric grows in. They are hardy, but they prefer to stay moist.

    Here's a few pics. I have it growing in a 2-3 part beach sand - 1 part ochid bark/perlite- half of 1 part crushed coral - 1 part peat mix with a little trichoderma, inside a terrarium and kept moist.

    This is one that makes the little palm trees (the sporophytes), although it's not reproducing right now.


    Species 2, which does gemmae cups and has a different kind of sporophyte.

    You can see the little stringy rhizoids, or primitive roots, in this one

    Better shot. These are kept on a propagation mist bench and receive a 15-second mist every couple minutes. My soil is 1/2 of my Ping mix and 1/2 CP mix.

    Species 3, which I collected from the Oconee River near the greenhouse.
