Aponogeton Flower Stalk
I have an A. crispus that has put out an
approximately 2 foot long flower stalk that I finally noticed last night (it is
in a corner of the tank in bad need of some pruning!) So I lifted about a
3 inch segment of it out of the water and awoke to find it split and tiny little
white flowers forming. My question is what to do next. I know (I
think!) that the flowers won't self-pollinate and you can use a brush to spread
the pollen around. But what about the seeds that form (hopefully)?
If someone could provide some insight into propagation of this plant I would be
most thankful. Also, I can rig my glass canopy to expose a lot more of the
stalk--would this produce more flowers or does only the end of the stalk produce
Lindy Brooks in Denver, CO where memories of a blizzard are
fresh in our minds.
