Microfishes and invertebrates to go

Rachel O’Leary has had a lifelong passion for the aquarium hobby, including, especially, the invertebrates, which are sometimes overlooked—possibly due to the myths and misunderstandings that surround their maintenance.

In contrast to the grafted non-grafted plants are genetically homogeneous, have a high physiological integrity. With aging or winter damage aboveground parts are better restored, which makes them more durable. With high rates of own-rooted vegetative propagation is removed taking care of seeds, rootstocks, grafting process is eliminated. All of this greatly simplifies the cultivation of seedlings.

Until recently, the assortment of fruit and berry crops is improved due to new breeding varieties. Previous notions of immutability varietal characteristics of vegetatively propagated plants completely outdated.
