ABC PLANTS - Ranunculus inundatus

Availability: Out of stock

An easy plant that does not require CO2 fertilization, this creeping aquatic plant from Australia is fairly new to the hobby and is wonderfully unique looking. It makes a great foreground or midground specimen and spreads through the substrate by producing runners. Its striking snowflake shaped leaves are very eye catching and look a bit like some herbs from your garden. They complement other common aquarium plants very well. Ranuculus is not very demanding and will thrive in a low-tech aquarium as long as the lighting is acceptable. Given supplemental CO2, this plant pearls beautifully and will grow quite denser.


Difficulty: Easy
Type: Stolon stem plant - hybrid growth type
Size: 5 - 10cm+ tall
Native Range: Australia
Position and Usage: Foreground to midground. Creeps along the substrate.
Growth Rate: Moderate to very fast
Lighting: 3/5 - 5/5
Water Conditions: 6 - 7.5 pH, soft or hard water (highly adaptable)
CO2: Not required

Propagation: Cut stem and replant, runners spread naturally through the aquarium.
Special Requirements: A fertile substrate is recommended either with root-tabs or just fish poop. As for all fast growing plants, regular fertilization with common aquarium fertilizer is also a good call. 

Emersed Growth: Runuculus innudatus is an aquatic member of a wide genera of land plants and is naturally amphibious so it grows quite well either fully or semi-emersed.
