Usually in this section we consider plants suitable for growing in an aquarium, however aquarists and simply fish lovers often decide to have fish outside their home, namely, in their pond in the garden. It is easy to care for plants growing in a pond when you have a basic knowledge of them.
A variety of growing plants in a pond can talk about how to care for them. There are floating aquatic plants, underwater, and plants that grow by the pond.
Choosing your plant
Choosing plants that will be grown in a pond should take into account which fish live there and the preferences of the owner. Things that are worth paying attention to in healthy plants are the condition of their leaves and stems.
Holes and spots may indicate a disease that can spread to other plants in your pond. After bringing your plants home, put them in a wet container and make sure that the leaves are immersed in moisture.
Care for plants in the pond is not difficult. You just need to be vigilant and monitor their condition.
Floating plants are easier to see than those that are underwater, so they are easier to care for. Plants that have their roots and are partially in the water are also easier to care for, since disease and decay are easier to identify in this form.
Growing pond plants means that the oxygen-rich pond helps the fish in the water. Pond fish use oxygen that supplies pond plants.
They can not only saturate the pond with oxygen, but also provide shelter and food for the fish.
Many of the growing plants in the pond eat some varieties of fish. Some control and caring attitude may be necessary if the fish eat them too much.
Some aquatic plants can be dangerous for fish, so it is better to do the necessary research.
It is also important to monitor harmful insects and snails, which can cause some damage to aquatic plants. Other rodents can also damage some plants, using parts of them to establish a nest for themselves. Growing such plants is also very attractive around the pond, so maintaining their health is one of the priorities.
Some of the plants may need fertilizers specifically designed for them to make them stronger and help them grow healthy.
