Different species of caulerpa react to environmental stimulus in different
ways and each species has different growth patterns and rates. I'm not sure I
could say with confidence what caulerpa in general will or will not do. I've not
grown much other than the local C. prolifera variations. The more tropical
types seem to be much more stiff and more likely to root into or on rocks. The
Local types are soft and grow most profusely in mud, they may be a completely
different species from C. prolifera but it is similar in blade form.
