Duckweed competition

I'm interested in doing a competition experiment in Botany class using two
species of duckweed; Lemna minor and Lemna gibba.  Does anyone know of a
reliable source for each?  Most supply companies list L. minor under their
duckweed offerings, but I can't find L. gibba and I wonder how carefully
the supply companies check the species of duckweed that they carry.  Any
help will be appreciated.  Also, if anyone has done this competition expt.
and has any insights to share I'd appreciate those also.

Thanks --  Greg.
