- these epiphytes like Enteromorpha and Ulva need to be sorted out before drying the cottonii harvest
- clean freshly harvested cottonii seaweed!
- Bu is contraction for Ibu. Literally meaning "mother" in Indonesian, it is the common appellation given to any adult woman. So when in doubt, call a woman in Indonesia as Ibu or Bu.

I love conversing with seaweed farmers. It is business for me so I can relate to the woes in cultivating the "gold of the sea." This woman was under the shelter of a cove at Lembongan, tending to her seaweed harvest. She was cleaning out the green epiphytic algae that was parasitically clinging on the cottonii (the clean ones are in the basket already). Was she sweet to give me that smile.
