Floating Plants

Planting some floating plants can be as easy as tossing them into the water and walking away, but for most of them, more can be gotten from them if a little bit of care is taken to give them a fighting chance. For instance, Water Hyacinth is one of these plants, It is self-righting most of the time, it will grow almost anywhere, and most people do not have any trouble growing it. But many people have large koi and/or goldfish populations, or their water flows too rapidly for the plants to stay in one place. Plants that find themselves in the skimmer, or trapped at the base of a water fall do not do well. For this reson it is a good idea to, whenever possible, get them caught up in some of the existing plants, or in an area where they will not be vulnerable to danger. Another good idea in the case of Lemna or Azolla, is to have a separate colony in the yard, separate from the fish. This way, as the fish eat the Lemna and Azolla on the pond, you can keep a fresh supply at the ready to keep the pond and the fish supplied.
