You are feeling too stuffy with tropical climates, and you want to improve it by planting trees and putting water into the decorations in your home. Planting aquatic plants for decorative purposes, or aquariums, is the solution to this problem. Planting plants under water should pay attention to plant nutrients, light, water flow, plants that can be grown under water, providing co2 for photosynthesis. In this article we will step by step solve these problems.
Nutrition for plants
Nutrition for aquatic plants is not a problem too complex, there are currently many types of fertilizers available for the underwater plant, which include groundwater and fertilizer. The ground we give when we plant a tree, the water we put in after the tree has grown and absorbed almost all the nutrients in the lake.
Light for trees
Light is essential for photosynthesis, with a level of 1 w for a liter of water. If you have 40 liters of water, you need a 40 watt lamp. However, this calculation is not entirely correct, for some plants that do not need strong light such as moss, we only need a light bulb of about 0.5 w for a liter of water. If we plant trees for blue, just white light of the led is enough. But if you plant trees with leaves like color white or red, then need color lights to help make the tree beautiful.
Flow of water
In addition to nature, such as a smooth lake without flowing water, there will not be many creatures, and the creatures living in the lake will not be beautiful. This also applies to indoor water plants. In order to grow beautiful and fast growing plants, we need to have filters and flow so that the water in the tank is always circulated.
Plants that can be grown under water
Plants that can be grown under water have now been found and have bred to produce a variety of plants, such as Java moss, Mos moss, Mini Fiss moss. These are trees that need less light and less CO2, and The higher and more colorful trees such as Bucep, Nana rhododendron, and other high-end trees.
CO2 for indoor decorative plants
Co2 is essential for the photosynthesis of aquatic plants. So one way or another we have to provide enough Co2 for our plants. Currently on the market offers a wide range of co2 replacement products in combination with water dispenser, which is suitable for beginners under water bonsai.
Water for bonsai lake
The water source for the bonsai pond is clean water, the current source is tap water, most of the water is available, but the amount of chlorine in the tap water is the dark matter for the growth of the plant. and the animals live in the lake, so we need to treat the water by leaving 24 hours of water outside the lake before putting it into the lake.
Growing plants under water is not too difficult, we just need to pay attention to the supply of essential nutrients, pay attention to water sources, provide additional co2 for photosynthesis, ensure enough light for photosynthesis and play.
