In most cases  aquarium plants are multiplied through cuttings. As cuttings, we use fragments of parent plants such as a stolon, rhizome, tuber, corm, runner, offset or bulb. In this way, we can propagate the majority of aquarium plants such as: Alternanthera, Bacopa, Myriophyllum, Hygrophila, etc. Parts of the cuttings  are put into the ground. In a short time new plants will grow out of them. This type of propagation also includes receiving new plants from fragments of leaves. Plants of the genus Ceratopteris can be perfectly reproduce from the pieces of leaves. It is enough just cut the leaves into fragments...

A few of aquarium plants will reproduce on their own without any interference while others need our assistance. Vegetative propagation of aquarium plants is the simplest way of multiplication. Vegetative reproduction is a form of asexual propagation. It involves dividing plants into fragments from which new plants are created. This new baby plant has all the characteristics of the parent plant. Most aquarium plants online are propagated vegetatively. Reproduction can be accomplish using: runners, offsets, bulbs, rhizomes and shoots. We can also divide plants into small fragments from which we get adult plants through planting. Vegetative reproduction of aquarium plants...

Plants growing in the tropics are mostly short daylight plants. In addition, we multiply our aquarium plants rather occasionally and the length of the light is intended only for optimal growth of plants. In moderate climates, in  summer when vegetation occurs, the night is short and the...

In the aquarium we mostly grow plants of tropical and subtropical climates. In these climate zones the temperature and light conditions throughout the year are similar. In moderate climates with four seasons we are dealing with plants that do not grow in winter. Winter (cold period) is even necessary for proper vegetation of these plants while plants of tropical zones grow throughout the whole year. However, there are some plants that come from cold climates and grow great in an aquarium. I will mention only a few well-known plants:   Cladophora sp. (Marimo), Saururus cernuus Sagittaria platyphylla, Lysimachia nummularia, Ceratophyllum demersum,...
