REPRODUCTION OF PLANTS
In the wild, the most common mode of reproduction among plants is sexual, involving
flowers and seeds. When the conditions in a setting are inauspicious, however, sexual
reproduction gives way to asexual reproduction, know as vegetative multiplication.
Pieces of plants that have broken off or been uprooted, and then swept along by
the movement of the water, settle and take root. It is this vegetative multiplication
method that is used in aquariums. The techniques used, which vary according to the
type of plants, are similar to those of horticulture.
