Duckweed is a type of aquatic plant that is often used in wastewater treatment and as a natural fertilizer.

If you add duckweed to a home composting bin, it should break down over time and release nutrients into the soil that can be beneficial for plants.

However, it is important to follow the instructions on the packaging and to make sure that the composting conditions in your home composting bin are suitable for the material.

Duckweed may not break down properly if the compost is too dry or if it is not turned regularly.
