Petroselinum crispum is aquarium algae species that is extremely active. It is also one of the most common aquarium plants found in the wild. This species has an approximate 20% share of the entire world's marine algae population. It is a floating carpet algae that can grow on virtually any body of water, from large lakes to large rivers. Its preferred habitat is nutrient-rich, oxygenated water. It doesn't like heavy cover or high densities.
The bulk of this species occurs in shallow waters and is rarely seen in deeper water. It prefers slightly alkaline water and doesn't like heavy clay or calcified materials. The plants are available in many different colors from white to red and pink. Some are small and round, some are long and hairy and some even look like ferns.
You can easily grow your own bulk Petroselinum crispum. There are two ways of cultivating it. One way is by sprouting the seeds which takes roughly two weeks time. The second way is by germinating the seeds which takes around eight weeks. If you have never grown this algae before it may be wise to start with the seeds.
Once you have got hold of some of these plants, you can easily start growing them in pots. Keep a lookout for signs that the leaves might turn yellow. Once you have established a good root system, you will see that your plants will grow rapidly. As the plants get bigger they will spread over the substrate and cover much of it.
You can usually find these algae at the beginning or the end of the summer months. Once you have established your bulk population you can just let them go. They will provide you with years of service. So don't worry if they die after the summer months. Just remove the dead leaves and you will soon have a nice green backdrop.
As the plants develop and spread, you will notice that they tend to grow in groups. They will develop into netting which is fine as long as you have some support behind them to hold them in place. These should be supported by wires that you can buy from a gardening supply store.
When it comes to replanting the bulk population will usually shoot up over six inches per year. They are not hardy plants by any stretch of the imagination. They will need plenty of support in order to thrive. You can provide them with a trellis, wire cages or whatever else you think they will need.
Once the plants have developed to a certain size you can then report them. If you have young seedlings, you should take care before you replant them. They may not survive the shock of having their roots suddenly removed from their mother plant. This is why it is best to only replant young plants into large bulk so that they have time to acclimatize to their new environment.
When you do replant them you need to use a support structure that is larger than your original planting hole. This will keep the plants from falling directly into the grass. If you have trees nearby, it may be beneficial to have them around during the reporting process. This way they will keep the roots from drying out and you will be able to harvest around the same time. Once the seedlings have finished growing you can then remove them from the bulk and place them in your garden.
The good news is that this hardy plant likes full sun. However if you live in an area that does not get a lot of sunlight, you can try putting yours in a container that has partial shade. Just remember that partial shade will provide less sunlight than fully shaded areas. There are plenty of uses for bulk Petroselinum crispum seeds in your garden. You just need to know how to harvest them safely.
One of the most common ways to harvest the seeds is to use a strainer. Simply put the bulk into a strainer and allow the excess water to drain away. Then take the seeds and place them into your compost pile. Just be sure to cover the container tightly so the moisture doesn't escape and the soil doesn't dry out.
Now you can simply rake the dirt off your patio or decking area. Just be sure to wear gloves and old clothes when doing this so you don't touch the bulk while it's still wet. When you're done cleaning you can then wipe it down with a garden hose. For best results use the washable dishwashing liquid because you don't want to transfer any dirt to your seeds.
