New to the aquatics market is the Ranunculus inundates, commonly known as the river buttercup. This decorative plant grows in damp locations in Australia, such as the shallows of ponds and lakes. Its most distinctive features are the leaves which are shaped like a slotted umbrella. Like Hydrocotyle species, this plant continually develops runners that generally creep along the substrate and form new leaf stems at the nodes. This gradually creates gorgeous groups of plants with an ornamental appearance. Ranunculus inundatus is a species that requires powerful illumination and consequently needs more fertilization than most plants.
InVitro specimens are submerged in 100 percent humidity. Many aquarium plantlets in the market are immersed, which means the leaves are growing above the water. These plants die back after they are planted inside a tank, and they regrow with the new leaves looking very different than they did when they were sold. With In Vitro submersed plantlets, you get even, continuous development.
Another advantage to the culture cups is that they contain many small plantlets that can be divided out and spread throughout your tank, so you get a lot of value for your money.
