Reindeer Limu (Codium)
Pick clean upper branches leaving lower branches to re-grow. Remove excess sand by rubbing plants well in seawater.
Keep plants refrigerated. Should not be dried or frozen as branches wilt and become stringy.
Reindeer limu grows attached to surfaces including coral reefs, rocks, and other sea plants. It can be small or large branching. Reindeer limu can be found in sheltered or wave-exposed areas but prefers strong currents (Novaczek, 2001).
