Where have you seen it in the wild?  The larger genus, Lemna, I tend to see
in very shallow waters, even ephemeral puddles, where there are no larger
plants nor fish.  Never having seen Wolffia, I can only speculate, but I
suspect is is an extreme specialist, surviving in places no competitior can
reach.
