About Aquatic Plants And Where To Buy Them

Probably one of the reasons why people are so enthusiastic about snorkeling and scuba diving is they not only see different kinds of fishes and other creatures, but they also get to take a look at unique colorful aquatic plants that you could not see on the land. These aquatic plants were known to live on the land before but they have adapted to live under the surface of the water or on aquatic environments.

Most Beautiful Flower

Probably, the most beautiful and popular aquatic plant is the “Nympheae Alba” or the water lily which could be commonly seen on ponds. These aquatic plants are also known to be hydrophytic plants or hydrophytes and they possess common qualities such as having a thin or no cuticle at all because they do not need it since they grow on the water, their stomata are open most of the time and have lots of it, possess a less rigid structure because the water pressure supports them, large flat leaves and air sac for floatation, small and feathery roots, and they have specialized roots which were designed to take in oxygen.

Like most of the aquatic plants, the water lily has the high structural material to reach high points for sunlight. Also, its leaves are tending to be wider without major lobbing to remain flat on the surface thus, maximizing the amount of sunlight received. Having a water lily in the pond would not only make a frog happy, but also could be a very pleasing sight for anyone.
