Buy InVitro Plants - From the Lab into the Aquarium
For a green aquarium, many aquarists like to use our in vitro plants: The special name comes from Latin and can be translated best with 'in the glass'. Grown under sterile conditions, these aquatic plants are especially suitable for invertebrates and aquascapers. For the cultivation of in-vitro aquarium plants, artificial environments such as petri dishes are used. Grown in the lab, in-vitro growers are free of pesticides, unwanted parasites or snails. Due to the protected cultivation of the plants, they are also free of pests, germs or algae. In conclusion in-vitro plants are great for your aquascape with invertebrates!
InVitro plants for shrimps
For shrimp enthusiasts, in vitro plants are often the best decision. A so-called nutrient medium provides all the nutrients the plant needs to grow healthy and emersed (above the water surface). This said nutrient medium is also called culture medium. The function of the nutrient or culture medium is to provide the young plants with a nutritious surface for formation of roots. The plant gets suppled with important micro and macro nutrients. Good to know: The nutrient medium is adapted to the plant individually. Depending on the plant, there are different culture medias. The differences are consistency, color and the composition. The color may change if the culture medium is used over a longer period of time. Before placing the plants in your shrimp aquarium, you should remove the culture medium, and place the plant in water for one hour. After rinsing it under clear water, you can now place it in your shrimp aquarium.
Typical for aquatic plants is their dwarfish appearance. If the leaves are still small, the growth of the roots may already be much more advanced. Due to the protected growth and artificial breeding, the plants develop differently than in nature. This is beneficial for many aquarists.
