over Texas in Arlington, Texas. On August 6th 2010, clippings were planted in 45- 6.59L plastic
treatment containers filled with 4.0L of a (Premier Tech Horticulture Ltd, Quakertown, PA)
50/50 mixture of sand and PRO-MIXTM potting soil (Figure 1). Holes drilled near the top of each
container allowed irrigation water to drain, creating a shallow layer of surface water (< 1.0 cm)
for plants to grow in. Before A. philoxeroides clippings were planted, empty 0.95L pots were
placed in the soil of 36 randomly selected treatment containers to allow space for introduction of
competitor species with minimal A. philoxeroides root disturbance (Figure 4). Two competitor
dicot species; Justica americana and Polygonum densiflorum, and two competitor monocot
species, Sagittaria platyphylla and Carex brevior, were propagated at the University of North
Texas aquatic plant nursery in 0.95L pots containing a 50/50 mixture of PRO-MIXTM (Premier
Tech Horticulture Ltd, Quakertown, PA), and sand (Figure 3). All plants were drip irrigated with
1.89 L/Day filtered well water.
