Aquatic and marginal plants should be placed in pond plant baskets filled with aquatic soil (sold separately) and topped with a thin layer of gravel to help prevent the soil from washing away. Ideal planting container: 11cm mesh basket per plant. This plant is suitable for zone 4 of a pond.
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.
