Aquarium Plants Guide

You purchased aquarium plants and what next?

Shipping plants to clients is simple. Aquarium plants are sent in plastic bags of appriopriate size. This prevents them from drying out.

Live Aquarium Plants are sold in pots, clumps or in loose form. All of them are from our own cultivation. It is essential because plants are healthy and strong, enable to survive shipping. Only fresh and solid plants are adequate to create and ensure the harmonious functioning of small underwater world. Thus we need to take some effort to cause plants grow well because this depends on maintaining proper fish health. Plants should fill about eighty per cent of the aquarium space in order to maintain biological balance.

Aquarium and Pond Plants

Before putting them into aquarium, mineral wool should be removed. If some leaves are yellowish, please trim them.  I recommend to rinse plants under running water. Then you can start arranging your water tank. You can plant them in clumps or put each stem into the ground separately. It is easier to do this work with tweezers. This way you do not demage cuttings and finally receive greaert effect. Put the cuttings deeply into the ground and soon they will have white fresh roots and get dense compact form.

Aquarium and Pond Plants

The deceive in life of aquarium plants is light because only in its presence the process of formation by way of assimilation carbon dioxide is possible. Without light, plants can not exist.

Our live aquarium plants demand moderate to high lighting. It is fundamental to lighten water tank for twelve hours a day.

Another very important point is the substrate. The best is commen gravel. You  can add some clay. Adding soil into the water tank, leads to the development of algae thus I cannot recommend it.

Aquarium and Pond Plants

The third important component is water. Its composition and quality determine the development of many aquatic plants. Our aquarium plants like soft and slightly acidic water.

The optimal range of pH is 6.5 :7.00.
