Cultivation of the water lily stem
Common name: Water lily stem
Water lily stems are the aerial parts of aquatic plants of the Nymphéaceae family. They are usually long, thick and hollow, allowing water lilies to float on the surface of the water. The stems feature heart-shaped leaves and are often adorned with beautiful flowers.
Lily pads thrive in ponds, lakes and streams where the water is calm and shallow. They need a sunny exposure to ensure optimal growth.
To plant lily pads, choose an area of your pond or pond where the water is about 30 to 60 centimeters deep. Dig a hole in the mud at the bottom of the water and gently push the rod into the ground, making sure the top of the rod sticks out of the water.
Water lily stems are relatively easy to care for. It’s important to make sure they get enough sunlight, as this promotes growth and flowering. Remove faded leaves and flowers regularly to encourage new growth. If the stems become too overgrown, you can prune them to control their expansion.
Water lily stems are usually not harvested, as they remain in the water to support the continued growth of the plant.
Diseases and pests:
Water lily stems are generally disease and pest resistant. However, certain conditions, such as standing water or poor maintenance practices, can favor the appearance of fungal diseases or insect attacks. Watch for signs of leaf or flower deterioration and treat promptly if necessary.
Water lily stems can multiply by dividing the rhizomes. In the spring or summer, when the plant is actively growing, carefully remove the rhizomes from the parent plant and plant them individually in suitable soil in another spot in your pond or pond.
Make sure the water the lily pads grow in is clean and free of pollutants. Avoid using harmful chemicals near your aquatic plants. Also be sure to maintain an ecological balance in your pond by introducing fish or other aquatic organisms that help control harmful algae and insects.
