Ranunculus Papulentus

The Ranunculus Papulentus is an extremely ornamental aquarium plant. The natural habitats of this plant, known as the river buttercup, are shallow waters and lakes in Australia.

Ranunculus papulentus is characterized by its interesting leaves, which resemble small umbrellas. To reach its full potential, this plant needs strong light. You must be patient with this species because it needs some time to adapt to new conditions. Once this is done, the water buttercup will show its full beauty. Plant the plant in the front of the aquarium.

The Ranunculus Papulentus is characterized by its compact shape and pronounced, deeply cut umbrellas. The plant can reach up to 10 cm in height, forming many vertical shoots with new plants and eventually creating a dense covering of the bottom. Compact growth can be achieved by strong light.

Under proper conditions, bushes reach a height of 6-10 centimeters, which makes the plant ideal for creating an interesting composition even in a nano aquarium.

Ranunculus Papulentus need some time to acclimatize to the conditions of "their" new aquarium. During this time, rhizomes are formed under the substrate and stored nutrients. Once the plant adapts, it begins to grow quickly. Many low-growing lateral shoots form, which quickly cover the foreground.

Water parameters: temperature 20-28° C, hardness dH 0-14°, acidity pH 5.0-7.0. In order to make the plant look spectacular, it is desirable to feed CO2 at a concentration of 20-40 mg / L. Carbon dioxide greatly accelerates seedling growth and improves its condition. Need a weekly change of 1/3 of the aquarium water with fresh.


Ranunculus Papulentus is a plant that is easy to propagate. The plant requires intense light to maintain its compact seedling size. In low light, it can grow tall by turning to a light source. It develops by forming rhizomes from which new seedlings grow. The growth rate is medium to high.

Ranunculus Papulentus is best planted in the substrate with tweezers. Seedlings are best placed in a group, next to each other. Then the plant looks the most lush. Also, the up-growing stems, if desired, can be cut back and planted in a new place, buried in the substrate and pressed on top with small stones.
