What plants to plant in an aquarium? Before you plant greens, you need to clear it from the snail eggs, as well as algae, mud and dregs.

Do not forget to prune dead plants (rotten, dry and sluggish). Then the plant must be disinfected. What manipulations should be carried out for processing:

  1. Place the seedling for 20 minutes in a solution of potassium permanganate (preferably a light pink color, so as not to burn it).
  2. You can make an alum bath, in which the plant should be lowered for 5-10 minutes. 1 tsp alum must be diluted in 1 liter of water.
  3. Another recipe for a disinfectant solution: 1 tsp. peroxide dissolve in 1 liter of water. Dip the seedling for 5 minutes.
  4. When disinfection is complete, the plant should be rinsed under clean water.

To accelerate the growth of seedlings, it is desirable to use the method of cutting the roots. A few minutes before planting it in the tank, it should be laid out in a capacity of 10 cm of washed soil, and fill it with water of the same height.

Planted aquatic plants need, starting with the background of the aquarium. To plant tall species behind, in front of them – low, or lush bushes, forming in one row vegetative cover.

From the front, the aquascape looks like an observation deck, to which attention will immediately be paid.

See how to plant plants in the aquarium.

You need to have roots in accordance with their natural growth. If such plants as aponogeton and the echinodorus root system are horizontal, go down a couple of centimeters downwards, then for cryptocoryne and vallisneria the root system is directed downwards vertically.

The characteristic error when planting is the bending of the roots, and not their direct location in the soil substrate. When you are going to plant cryptocoryne and other species in the reservoir with a similar root system, make a hollow in the ground deep and place a seedling in it below the root neck, then flatten the root. Soil should be pinched, and the plant to pull up to the neck spine was above the surface of the soil.

This procedure helps to place small branches of the roots directly in the ground.

When planting plants with a creeping rhizome, you need to take a group of seedlings of 4-6 pieces, and plant them together to form a decorative look in an aquarium with fish. When planting creeping plants, each of them properly positioned at a distance of 1-2 cm from each other.

In a similar way it is necessary to plant those species that grow slowly.
