    Default All about pruning aquatic plants


    0 Not allowed!
    Anyone know of a good online source for this kind of information? The only stuff I've discovered so far is that there are a lot of people out there that are aware pruning takes place, but there is never any discussion about how to make the cut, where to cut or if you can just stick the stem you just cut back into the substrate to propagate another plant.

    Ideally a website would have plants by species name, common name, have a picture, and a detailed explanation of how to go about pruning it, but I guess that's a lot of information to gather. Perhaps that's a future entry on my "To Do List."

    Anyone know where I could get my hands on some of this information? Much appreciated. Thanks!

    I would assume they are pruned like any plant. If you see any new shoots, cut just above that new shoot. If they are just bushy and taking up too much space, cut about anywhere you want. The more you prune, the bushier they get.

    Try here. They have an article on propagation and might have something on pruning, but I haven't found it yet. Great info on plant types/w pictures and lighting/care requirements.

    I can't forget about my local library, our town just built a new library at a cost of 8 million dollars!!!!! My taxes will be going up for years... the old library worked just fine and didn't stop the township from upgrading all of the local schools either....

    i was just making a generalization based on what i have seen. i was in no way saying that you personally, do not go to the library. lol
