SUBMERGED POND PLANTS: Adding these plants to your pond is a big decision. In some cases, these plants offer added filtration and increased oxygen levels to ponds with restricted water flow. One benefit we have experienced with submerged aquatic pond plants, is they aid in developing fertilized koi eggs, as they provide excellent shelter. They also add as physical stimulant for the koi. Koi fish love to swim through the underwater plant leaves. Unfortunately, these plants are extremely evasive and near impossible to remove. With a little time, these submerged pond plants can swallow a pond whole! Types of submerged plants include: Anacharis, Hornwort, Vallisneria, and Cabomba.
