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!

How to grow garden peony (Paeonia lactiflora) from seeds. 如何孵芍藥種子. Seeds germination in about 2-3 months. 種子約2-3個月發芽.

Normally you can harvest garden peony seeds in late summer to early fall when they are mature and dry.  Or bag the seed pods and wait until late fall just to make sure the seeds maturity.   Even though the easiest way to propagate garden peony is by root division, you still can have fun to hybrid whatever you have!  Like tree peonies, this genus will require different DNA to seed.  Make sure the pollination is done by hand pollination!

正常來說你可以在夏末秋初時種莢成熟乾燥就可以採收種子了.  或者更保險的是包住種莢後等到秋末再來採收更能保證種子的成熟與乾燥度.  雖說芍藥最佳的繁殖方式是從休眠的根系做分株法的無性繁殖,但你也可以隨意雜交你院子中有栽種的芍藥品種來嘗試有性繁殖.  如同木本的牡丹,該屬的植物需要不同基因的異株授粉來結子.  為確定授粉完全可以採用人工授粉!

1.In a pot with moist potting soil in slightly cool and partial shade to light shade location with slightly soil cover the seeds.  Seeds start to germinate about 2 to 3 months.  To save space, I usually put seeds together in one pot first.

1.取一盆填滿鬆軟濕潤的盆植用土,置於偏涼爽的半日照到散光處,種子需要淺覆土.  種子約2-3個月就會開始發芽.  為節省空間,我通常是將種子同批地放同一盆來孵.

2.Pick the sprouting seeds gently and plant them one in each small pot.  Keep  them in partial shade and not too cool (15C-25C) so they can continue to grow.  Do not dry out.

2.小心揀出發了芽的種子並將種子一枚個別栽種在一個小盆內.  保持在半日照約15-25度的溫度所以小實生苗能繼續生長.  保持濕潤不要讓小苗們乾掉.

3.Transplant the seedlings when they are growing too big for the small pot.  You can either grow them in the ground outdoors in full sun location or in larger pot with rich soil in partial shade to full sun location.  Well drained but moist rich soil is ideal.

3.當小苗們長大到小盆嫌小時可以將小苗移植.  你可以將其地植在全日照處或者換較大的盆來種植於半日照到全日照處.  用排水良好但濕潤的沃土來種植是最理想的.
