    How to keep nymphs until spring? I was told that they should spend the winter in a bucket of water, is that so?

      - Optimal wintering of nymphs in the bottom of the reservoir (at a depth of 1 m), as in nature. Plants in containers are rearranged from a shallow zone deeper or put into the cellar, after lowering them by half in a bowl of water. In this case, cover the growing point with moist moss. I do not recommend storing the water lily in the cellar, immersed in water with the pot. The plant will "suffocate", suffer from rot and disease.

      My favorite way

      I completely cleanse it of earth, old roots and leaves, wrap it in wet sphagnum and - in a cellar. If it is dry there, I put the bundle in a plastic container with a lid, and occasionally ventilate and examine. The storage temperature should be as comfortable as for potatoes. Closer to spring, you will see that it is time to plant - the buds and roots will begin to wake up.
      Such storage will allow the rhizomes to "sleep", in the future it will provide plants with excellent rapid growth and flowering. In addition, during storage, sphagnum actively fights against pathogenic bacteria. The main thing is not to bring slugs with him. To do this, I completely immerse the freshly harvested moss in warm water for an hour (slugs, insects and snails will crawl out to the surface of the water or drown). Then I let it drain and use.

    Every 5-8 years it is necessary to carry out a rejuvenating division of the nymphs.
    It is best to divide and plant these aquatic plants in spring with the establishment of warm weather, when there is an active growth of the vegetative mass.

    Do not let my mistakes when choosing a nymph for a pond. I bought a nymph who conquered me with a beautiful flower, planted it in a pond and nearly killed the plant.

    The fact is that my nymphaeum was large (high grade), and she needed a large depth of the bottom - about 80-100 cm, and I placed it closer to the coast at an insufficient depth. And at a shallow depth - from 40 cm - it is necessary to place dwarf varieties of nymphaea. Now I’m interested in which variety I’m buying, and I already know in which zone of the reservoir I will plant it.
