In Vitro plants
In vitro aquascaping: be different
Tissue culture (T/C) is a way to obtain perfect, sterile clones of a plant thanks to in vitro conditions, from a very small piece of a mother plant.
Since 2009, Anubias company is the leader of T/C aquarium plants, with the largest assortments of
species available on the market, now offered in three distinct lines of products: Linea cup, Linea Tube and Linea Carpet.
T/C cultured plants are the best solution for many problems, for the aquarium enthusiasts and for the trad:
Benefit for the aquarist:
◊ The availability of plants generally avoided by plant nurseries, because difficult to grow emerged
◊ Many T/C cultured species start growing very promptly once in a tank, faster than potted plants grown emerged
◊ T/C plants are pesticide-free
◊ T/C plants are algae spores-free
◊ T/C plants don’t carry Lemna sp., snails, Hydra and any other unwanted organism
◊ T/C plants are rockwool–free, so no contaminants or mechanic threats are carried into the tank
◊ Reasonable price
Benefit for the trade:
◊ T/C plants can maintain their quality for months in a shop, with sufficient light.
◊ T/C plants don’t need any facilities to be stored, so every shop can store them with out problems.
◊ Packaging of T/C plants is generally very nice and attractive and show many more information than a normal label for potted plants.
◊ The presence of a barcode on the packaging.
◊ The availability of plants generally avoided by plant nurseries, because difficult to grow emerged.
◊ The possibility to sell delicate plants, generally difficult to store and to handle when potted.
◊ T/C plants are environmentally friendly, since free of any pesticide
◊ T/C plants are very useful to preserve endangered but popular species, since they help to avoid collection of wild specimens.
Here you can find a nano tank 100% in vitro:
We start to plant our small portion of cup by helping as tweezers after washing them with agar.
Even after the first week we will see that our aquarium start to grow.
After 1 month of grow we will have an amazing aquarium just with the Anubias cup!
Enjoy your aquarium!!
