Bog Arum, Looking For A Home

    Bog Arum is an aquatic plant that grows in my pond.  I am not positive about what causes it, but in the spring when the ice melts, numerous chunks of the plant can be seen floating around on the surface of the pond.  I suspect these sections of the plant are scraps left over after a muskrat meal during the  winter, but whatever the cause, the bog arum is well adapted to the abuse because the chunks  immediately send out roots in hopes that it can float over to some place where it can grow.
