Crassula helmsii: Bury plants
Overall effectiveness category No evidence found (no assessment)
Number of studies: 0
Background information and definitions
Lightproof barriers have been shown to be effective in removing C. helmsii in some cases, and burying the plant under soil could be another potential approach. This could be carried out at the same time as creating a new pond, using the soil that is dug out to fill in a C. helmsii-infested water body. Studies investigating the use of burying with soil once a lightproof barrier has been put in place are discussed in ‘Use lightproof barriers’.
