Growing Water Lily from Cuts

February 13th, 2017
 Here you can see one of the Water Lily Nymphaea sp that I planted back in January 2017.

Notice a smaller plant growing on the left of the same bulb.

I am going to cut it off to make room for the large plant.

I plant this cut-off into another aquarium.

 Let's see if it will grow.

 The plant grows beautifully.

 Each of the two water lily bulbs that I planted in January 2017 have produced 4 plants.
Here you can see them all in 8 aquariums.

 These two are the oldest plants growing on the bulbs.

All other plants are cut-offs from those bulbs.

Some of these aquariums are populated with fish, while some are populated with other small water creatures. 

 Have fun and happy plants :)
