AQUATIC PLANTS: Aquatic pond plants are essential to maintain optimum water balance. They provide an excellent source of oxygen to the pond, give coverage and shelter to your koi, can be used to redirect water flow, fight algae, and are a necessary component in the nitrogen cycle. If you do not have an ultraviolet sterilizer added to your filter system, we strongly recommend using a variety of aquatic plants in your pond to help prevent single cell (green water) algae blooms. Pond plants such as lillies and lotus, bog plants, and typs of floating plants all look great in your pondscape.
Without plant care, your beautiful pond plants can quickly take over your entire pond causing harm to fish, pond imbalance, structural damage, and even leaks. Dead foliage needs to be removed, roots need to be tended to, and repotting and fertilizing needs to occur to maximize bloom yields.
SEASONAL POND PLANTS: When choosing aquatic plants for your pond, you should keep in mind that a lot of pond plants go dormant during colder winter months. However, there a some aquatic plants that thrive in cooler temps. Combining summer and winter seasonal plants will guarantee pond blooms all year long.
