Mini greenhouse pet bottle to emerge aquarium plants
The emersed cultivation can be interesting both in itself and as a way of spreading aid to the aquarium, as some plants have a much faster emersed growth, in addition to being safer and cheaper cultivation way, since there are no problems with algae do not need filtration system nor heating, so when there is a desirable amount of the plant, you can pass it to the aquarium, preferably with a period of adaptation to the aquatic environment.
The only requirements are emersed cultivation lighting, humidity and always keep a well-soaked substrate.
Well, here's a tip construction of a mini greenhouse made from plastic bottles, which can be used to adapt plants to emersed cultivation.
Material for making the greenhouse:
Two bottles of 2L soda (Transparent)
Drill 3mm (if you are using drill or Dremel, otherwise use a nail)
xaxim powder (optional)
Way of doing:
1st step: Cut the bottom of the bottle, as shown below:
The bottle should look like this:
2nd step: Drill holes in the second bottle with a drill of 3mm hot nail, or what you have right now.
It should be well spaced, about 10 holes are already enough:
Step 3: Cut the top of the bottle you made the holes:
You will get two pieces:
Step 4: Plug the mouth of the bottle which you removed the background, with acrylic wool:
Step 5: Fill the bottom of the second bottle with water up to half the height
Step 6: Put the substrate (garden mixture of sand, worm humus and tree fern powder) in the bottle whose mouth was clogged with acrylic wool.
Step 7: Assemble as shown in figure:
You should get off the bottle until the water is at the substrate level.
Step 8: Plant changes recently removed from the water.
Finally: Plug the top of the bottle you made the holes:
I have been using this method for some time and so far had good results:
here I leave some greenhouses did previously and already have well-developed plants.
I hope you like, excuse the quality of the photos, but I am a lousy photographer.
If in doubt just put here, I will be happy to clarify them.
