    In the aquarium, aquatic plants are a good beautification tool. Of course, there are many types of aquatic plants, such as stem plants, radial plants, tuberous plants, etc. Different plants have different habits, so there will be differences in planting. Now let’s take a look at the basic planting methods for different species of aquatic plants.

    The layout of aquatic plants is not just about planting. Feeling beautiful is also necessary. At the same time, the habits of fish must also be considered. Therefore, it is necessary to carefully review whether the aquatic plants are densely grown or alienated, and the fish’s recreational space should be large and small.

    At this time, nature can be said to be the best example. Practical observations, reference books, and TV materials will help you arrange your fish tank and get a moderate amount of space and unbalance. A large plant is best if it can be fully expanded. Those who are green and have not yet fully grown must consider the future growth situation. Solitary aquatic plants should be planted in clusters. If you only plant one, you will lose your balance. Planting only aquatic plants, using fluorescent lights for plants, can improve the effect even more. After the planting is stable, the fish can be put in.

    In the water tank, it is necessary to show the effect of decoration as much as possible. At the same time, if the plants are to grow fully, the water plants must be divided into categories. In the place where the amount of light is fully irradiated, the species with a large area is used as the background, and the species with luxuriant branches make it alone in the corner. Small aquatic plants are placed as the focal point of the middle scene, and usually nothing is placed in the foreground, leaving it empty. Dense plants arrange the background along the side, not in the front.

    1. Radial Aquatic Plants

    Radial aquatic plants do not have a main stem, and they grow leaves directly from the base, such as crown grass and peper grass. These grasses are usually used first. Middle shots can better highlight the beauty of this kind of grass. When planting, it is usually planted separately, but sometimes two or three trees can be bundled into one to increase the momentum.

    2. Adhesive aquatic plants

    Adhesive aquatic plants, as the name implies, grow on other things. The more commonly used species are iron crown, small banyan leaves, carex, etc., usually using driftwood as the substrate, and then fixing the aquatic plants on the driftwood with a fishing line. Most of these grasses grow slowly, and they are less natural when they are first planted and cultivated slowly, the more they have ornamental value.

    3. Tubers Aquatic Plants

    The most representative tuber aquatic plants are those commonly known as taro plants in the Nymphaeaceae family. When this type of grass is planted, there is only one tuber without leaves. Just bury the tuber halfway in the sand and don’t let it float. The tuber contains the nutrients to store aquatic plants. As long as the conditions are right, you can grow very dense leaves in a week or two. The characteristics of Nymphaea aquatic plants are that when there is insufficient CO2 in the water, floating leaves will grow on the surface of the water. If it is a three-degree space aquascape tank, you can enjoy the beauty of floating leaves, but if not, don’t leave too many floating leaves. , So as not to block the precious light from affecting the water plants growing below.          

    4. Sedentary Aquatic Plants

    Most of the Sedentary Aquatic Plants are some low aquatic plants such as dwarf pearls. Marsilea exarate are suitable for the foreground. When planting, only a handful of the young leaves should be picked and buried in the sand, leaving some space, as in the situation. Good, it can grow into a large area in two weeks.
