Water Thyme (Hydrilla verticillata) bulbs and water lily bulb. 水王孫與睡蓮的球根.

Hardy aquatic plant. Perennial.    Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location in pond or aquarium.  USDA Zones:5-11. Mature size:1.5′-2′(H) X 4′-6′(W).  Propagate by cuttings,bulbs or division.  Fast growing, could be invasive.  My opinion it is only good inside the aquarium for small fish.  Do not grow them in open water!

水王孫又叫做黑藻. 長得跟水蘊草很像但葉片較為稀疏. 強健的水生植物.  多年生.  容易栽種.  最好栽種在全日照到半日照的池塘或水族箱中.  耐寒也耐熱.  成熟株高1.5-2呎,寬幅4-6呎.  繁殖方式以扦插,球根或分株的方式來進行. 生長極為快速會成為強勢植物.  我覺得這養在水族箱內跟魚類一起就好.  勿在開放水域內放養!
