The periodic nucleation solutions of the real Ginzburg-Landau equation in a finite box were discussed. It was found that the dynamical systems admits stable and unstable stationary plane wave solutions and homogeneous stationary solutions. The nucleation solutions allowed transitions between stable plane waves.
