Caring and Maintenance

This is a very low maintenance aquatic plant which spreads to form large clumps quickly. Propagate through division at any time in the growing season. All wandering stems may be cut to control plant growth.

Oxygenating plants grow from the bottom of ponds or water features. Their submerged leaves give off bubbles of oxygen, improving the water quality for fish and other pond life and maintaining the ecology balance of the the pond. These plants also absorb mineral salts from the water and reduce algae growth.
