Plants in the aquarium, the hardness is slightly lower. Fruit long cylindrical. The flowers and fruits in summer and autumn. When planted, there should be enough light. Weak alkaline water quality, water temperature 22-28 C. Once you do, you should not move. In the underground a long stem lateral bud propagation. As a general medium of grass.

Bolbitis heudelotii
To be native to Africa. Rhizome thick, with about 20 cm long, dark green leaves. Growth, will be the direction of the horizontal or inclined to grow a thick leaf, especially eye-catching in the aquarium. Suitable for a weak base weak acid water, the water temperature of 24 ~ 26 DEG C. Is aquatic fern is strong. Moderate light looks the most beautiful. Because in longer than rock or driftwood, so it can be grown in the above aquarium, pinnate leaves will extend to the oblique direction, the aquarium in the composition more features.

Cabomba australis
Native to Brazil. Stems from 3 to 5 segments of the needle like leaves, while the parietal yellow to pale red. If the planting condition is excellent, will become a beautiful circle shape. Are not easy to cultivate one of the varieties of plants, the condition is not HERSHEY’S will stop growing for a long time. Suitable for neutral a weak acid water quality, water temperature 20 ~ 30 C, and applied to the amount of fertilizer, carbon dioxide will grow well. Every 2-3 days to replace the 1/3 water in the aquarium, the growth is also very helpful.

Take part of plant nutrition to planting

1. cutting time in early spring and summer is better, also can choose the most vigorous growth of plants. Generally speaking, most of the cuttings in 20-25 process temperature, the relative humidity of the air is easy to root in 70%-80%.
2. cutting matrix ideal cutting matrix should be not only to keep moist, and can breathe freely, commonly used in the rooting medium perlite, vermiculite, sand and so on, family cutting only clean river sand is more convenient. The cutting depth in Section 1 / 3 ~ 1 / 2, first with bamboo in the matrix on Jack, then heading into the hole, conveniently according to the real or watering the hole filling. The water content of the substrate should be controlled in the, which can provide higher substrate humidity and air humidity in the early stage of 50%-60%, but it is suitable to reduce the humidity, so as to prevent the decay.

Cutting method
Stem cuttings can be inserted into the soft and hard wood cutting rod. Green wood cutting for perennial herbaceous flowers; hardwood cutting is use has grown mature branches or stems dry cutting, cutting the plant stems or vine cut stems with festival, each cut into 6-10 cm, with 2-3 day, but also with the apical bud and remove lower leaf and shear to 1 / 3-1 / 2 of upper leaves, to reduce water evaporation, then stems directly inserted in the slotting machine.

Ye Chafa some flowers leaves can be easily rooting, artificially wound, promote the formation of a
new plant root, operation.

When selecting healthy leaves, the petiole inserted directly in the sand, or the leaves cut in half after an oblique or in the sand.

Leaves on the back with a blade row, 2 wound, cut the petiole, lay it flat on a tool with slotting machine, the Ye Bei and the tight sand.

Close contact; appropriate shade, water, at 20 to 25 DEG C under suitable temperature, about 30 days to grow seedlings, this method is suitable for Africa
Violet, succulent flower breeding Gloxinia etc..

Yet during the germination of axillary bud bud is inserted, the blade with short branches together cut, shallow into the moist sand plain, casual wear
Shoot tip with sand. When the petiole wound a new root, it will promote the formation of axillary bud and seedling.

At some interpolation plant available plant roots underground ministry rod as cutting material, cutting in soil pot.

When will the roots, cut into 2-3 cm, slightly dry after incision to be inserted in the nimble slotter or buried desire, covering 1~2.

Cm thick matrix, keeping moist, to make it take root and sprout.
Water insert method choose a dark glass bottle, filled with water from strong shank blade. To put the petiole in the water.

2-3 cm, a slight light scattering light, every 2-3 days for water once, 20 days to take root, then the leaflets are beginning to sprout.
When roots grow to a certain number, you can remove the upper basin. For watering flowers have Africa geranium, violet.
