However, they observed no significant reduction in relative growth rate when E. crassipes was exposed to continuous low levels (10% defoliation) of biomass removal in high or low nutrient scenarios suggesting that chronic exposure to low levels of herbivory are not effective at controlling E. crassipes, regardless of nutrient concentration.

Nutrient inputs to the Great Lakes from runoff may provide the necessary nitrogen and phosphorus levels for E. crassipes growth. Retailers advertise the E. crassipes as a good oxygenator plant for ponds. Dense contiguous mats create navigation and safety concerns in waterways, harbors, and marinas. In Caohai and Dianchi lakes in Yunnan province, southwestern China, E. crassipes had competed with native plants for water, nutrients, and space, and contributed to the reduction in native plant diversity (Jianqing et al.

Water hyacinth is bad news for Guntersville and other great fisheries in the Tennessee Valley. 2001). Although it is capable of producing dormant seeds, evidence suggests that E. crassipes will not establish a population in the Great Lakes region via sexual reproduction due to the lack of genetic diversity of the introduced populations and the lack of seeds found in the sediment where it has been introduced (Adebayo et al. water-hyacinth, common water-hyacinth, floating water-hyacinth, Eichhornia speciosa Kunth, Piaropus crassipes (Mart.)

Climate change may make the Great Lakes more suitable for this species’ establishment. Water hyacinth is present in the states of the southeast U.S., and California, Hawaii, and the Virgin Islands. Water hyacinth was introduced to North America in 1884 and later to Asia, Africa, and Australia.Since there are no natural enemies in the new location, it can multiply quickly and cause disaster.
