Submerged pond plants are great oxygenators for ponds with little to no water flow. They help fight algae by starving the algae from the nutrients it needs to flourish. These plants can be rapid growers and can quickly take over your entire pond. Be careful adding these plants to your pond. Once they are added, they are very difficult to remove. We only recommend these plants for stagnant ponds. ***Click here for examples of submerged pond plants.
