- "Seaweed can be over three feet long. When its spores attach to rocks, they take root and grow. Seaweed is naturally brown but turns to the dark-green color we associate it with when cooked. It tends to spoil easily when picked, so various preservation methods have been developed as a necessity. Such methods of preservation are sprinkling ash and drying it out, or boiling it and adding salt."
