Extending the studies of surfactant-containing products, we have investigated the effect of the Liquid Crystal Concentrate detergent on aquatic macrophytes Elodea canadensis within laboratory microcosms. It has been shown that the detergent produced some negative influence on the macrophytes at 50–150 μL/mL (5–15 vol %).
