Both water and grass are the same as the egg shape (moment circle) and the shape of the leaf, which has a glossy green leaves, leaves without a handle, and the top round. In the water, the grass roots are especially strong and growth retardation. Suitable for a weak base weak acid water, the temperature of 22-30 DEG C. Planting time should not be too dense, insufficient light, lower leaves will fall off even the death of the whole plant, with cuttings or lateral bud propagation. Vertical water grass posture best, to 15-20 strains of implant double charm, flowering and fruiting period for the autumn, commonly used as a prospects, ornamental plants.

Bacopa sp
Native to South america. Is a small leaf. The cultivation conditions and reproductive modes with small leaf (false purslane, Barco Ba Meng grass).

Blyxa aubertii

Basal leaves, a linear lanceolate or linear, 8-15 cm long, 6-7 mm wide, the top of Zhejiang pointed, base ministry into membranous and transparent sheath. Can blossom and bear fruit. Fruit linear, 4-6 cm long. The flowers and fruits in summer and autumn. Take the underground stem length with 6 leaf lateral bud propagation. Planted in the weak alkaline water, water temperature 22-28 degrees C. Give the water soluble fertilizer and strong light cultivation, will grow green leaves with Shu Shengming. As a large aquarium grass medium.

Various grasses in West Africa

Anubias barteri cv.Argstifolia
Native to West Africa. Leaf long oval. Adequate light and carbon dioxide should be given after planting. In a weak acidic water, the water temperature 22-28 ~ C easy growth. To plant new buds sprouting on the breeding. In general, as the background of grass.

Anubias barteri var. Nana
Native to West Africa. Is small Anubias plants, is the most strong water plants. Slow growth, the highest plant is only 10 cm, only 1 to 2 per month long. Leaf blade dark green, ovate. In a weak acidic water, the water temperature of 22 ~ 28 DEG C, fertilizer and carbon dioxide is sufficient, good plant growth. Breeding to grow rhizome branches. The general cultivation at the bottom of the aquarium or rocks, driftwood, as before, the grass. The old leaves like algae can be born in an easy way fur, in the aquarium fish to remove algae.

Anubias barteri var.nana sp
Native to West Africa. Is anubiasbarteri (Byas that pitted the grass) water type.

Anubias glabra
Native to West Africa. Long rhizome, end of the growth of oval green leaves, growth is very slow, but strong and easy to cultivate. Suitable for a weak base weak acid water, water temperature 18 to 28 DEG C. General as the prospect of grass.

Acorus gramineus

Originating in Japan, Taiwan, china. Perennial perennial herbaceous plant. Aromatic, adapt to weak acid, a weak alkaline water, the water temperature 15-25 art Sun Gensheng, rhizome procumbent, obliquely ascending or to elongate, pale green leaves a radial sword shaped or linear, the width is not more than 2 cm, length of about 15-30 cm, above middle tapering and sharp, flowering and fruiting periods 5-7 month.

Altemanthera lizacina1  Altemanthera lizacina

Fly Liyakelusi grass Aconts gramiiwus var.pariggalu native to Japan, China and other parts of Asia, sub Luz plants of improved varieties, shape with subclinical can Luz plants of the same, water Soddy pale yellow or green water is easy to be small, pale yellow disappeared and become a bright green, adapt to the weak acid and neutral water quality, temperature 15-25 degrees C, planting, add carbon dioxide (CO2), with strong light illumination, can prevent short stature.

Lobar blood heart LAN (sub Ludiernandilali Ji grass) Altemanthera lizacina native to central and South America, leaf width, front and back sides is deep red. When planting more carbon dioxide, which should be in no shelter from the open area, the growth in bright light, it grows up leaves. Is difficult to planting, propagated by cuttings or prune buds, aquarium lumination should is moderate, the leaf will atrophy and impede students Di to a neutral weak acidic water, the water temperature for 24 ~ 30 art. From 1 to 3 in the background, as the strain concentration with grass.

Acorus gramineus1   Acorus gramineus

The broad leaf blood heart LAN (sub Ludiernandilalian jicao) Attemanfizera reineckii J, native to tropical and subtropical regions. Growth height of 50 cm. Red or Black Tea color, like to use leaf wavy shape to grow. To adapt to a weak base weak acid water, the temperature of 24~30 DEG C. Can be controlled by adjusting the light to control the size of the blade. Although the lower part of the leaf is easy to fall off, it is still the most robust and easy to cultivate varieties of the red system. The main breeding cuttings. As a background, in the grass.
