Reproduction of Pond Plants

Your water garden, no matter how big or small, is never going to seem large enough to handle both all the plants that you would like to grow and how fast the plants them selves grow. Don’t despair though, controlling how your plants reproduce and how many plants you allow in the garden is just a manner of controlling your space as with any garden that you create.

One method of controlling the plants in your water garden that are reproducing and creating an over crowded look in your water garden is thinning out. Just as the words sound, you will have to physically take some of the water garden plants out of the water so that the other plants will have enough room to continue growing and to balance the water environment for your fish.

What will you do with the plants that you are thinning out, taking them out of the water garden? Often you can sell off plants from your water garden, you can give these plants away as gifts to others, or you can simply let them dry out and dispose of them. When thinning your water garden plants it is a good idea to take out the plants that are a little more yellow or brown on the leaves as these could be the sicker plants of your entire collection.

Sexual reproduction of your water garden plants plays a very vital role in the survival of some plants. Flowering of some plants seems to take place after periods of darkness or light when a hormone in the plant is released and stimulates the bloom itself. Temperatures and additional hormones of plants are important in the sexual reproduction of plants as well. The sex cells that a plant needs to reproduce are just as with animal, male and female. When a plant sexually reproduces it will produce the characteristics of both plants that are involved in the reproduction, which is how many varieties of plants are born.

A sexual reproduction is the process of a plant reproducing without the involvement of sexual organs. Because the new plant will grow off of the parent plant or out of the parent plant, the sizes will vary because it will be determined by the environmental factors on the parent plant. If the parent plant is producing during a drought season, the offspring’s could be small. One advantage of the a sexual reproduction methods is that a plant can be established and produce other established plants within a very short time in the water garden

If you are going to thin out some of your water garden plants because your area is becoming a bit over populated you should be sure to read up on the plants that you are going to thin out. Thinning can put stress on some of the plants that you leave behind because you are going to have to cut some roots in order to thin plants out. When the temperatures are a bit cooler, the roots that you cut on some water garden plants can rot where they might not in warmer temperatures.
