These Aquatic Plant Baskets have screen-like sides and bottoms, retaining soil while allowing water to pass through easily. They are perfect for Marginals and other Bog Plants that require a depth of water that does not pass the top of the pot, where water may still saturate the plants' root and soil.
Water Lily / Lotus Tubs are specifically designed with no drainage holes at their base, and extra-wide capacity to accommodate large Waterlily and Lotus growth and root systems. These tubs can be planted and carefully set on the bottom of the pond without losing soil. Water Lily / Lotus Tubs come in a plethora of sizes and gallon capacities for everything from Pygmy sized Hardy Water Lilies, all the way up to large spreading Lotus, all shown below. (Note: the Large Lotus Tub is a double-width, 'Tuff Tub.')

Would you like to add plants to an area that's just too deep? Or is the center of your pond lacking in plant growth? Try a Floating Plant Basket! These ingenious planters have fabric containers laid inside circular styrofoam floaters, ready for any type of plant to grow healthily at a safe 0-8 inch water depth anywhere in the pond! Floating Plant Baskets can be achored and restrained to one spot in the pond, or left untethered to float around the pond wherever the current takes it! They come in three size diameters: 10 inch, 14 inch, and 19 inch.
Grow a lush, fertile island of aquatic plants, grass, flowers, and any other types of thirsty plants on the Islandscapes Floating Planter. After filling specific hollow sections with included mulch and your own soil, set plants directly into the polyurethane media and set it in the pond. The plants will access the mulch and soil for fertilizer, and their roots will grow directly through the media, hanging into the pond to get water. Islandscapes Floating Planters also provide shade for the pond, and additional protection and hiding places for your fish. 5 sizes are available, varying in length, width and depth (delineated below), and they are all relatively "kidney bean-shaped."
Laguna Plant Bags are the perfect planters for areas that won't necessarily fit a large or rigid pot. These sqaure, flexible cloth planters will hold soil and shape-shift to fit between rocks, in corners, and other small areas. They are water-permeable, allowing for root saturation without soil loss. Laguna Plant Bags are versatile and affordable! They come in 3 sizes: Small (7-in x 7-in. x 7in.), Medium (10-in x 10-in. x 8in.), and Large (12-in x 12-in. x 10in.).
Made with an extra-thick, reinforced plastic compund, Lerio & Laguna Potting / Planting Tubs are built to last. Smaller sizes of these tubs are great for large lilies and lotus, and the larger size tubs for gigantic lilies, like the Victoria. OversizedLerio & Laguna Potting / Planting Tubs, such as the Lerio150 Gallon Large Tub, can also be used for water gardens and large dry planters.
Simple, but incredibly useful, these plastic Green Pots come in a huge selection of sizes, and have small drainage holes in the bottom. They're great for Bog and Marginal Plants, dry plantings outside of the pond, small to medium-sized Submerged Plants and Tropical Lilies, and more!
Having the right Soil means everything when it comes to growing healthly, prolific, heavily flowering, beautiful plants! Our Bag of Soil contains a rich combination of clay-based, Earthen mix and high quality top soil, providing a heavy, pond-like bottom for plants to root deeply, while retaining plenty of the nutrients and natural fertilizer associated with excellent top soil. One Bag of Soil is 5 gallons, enough to fill one large lily tub. *NOT FOR SHIPPING DUE TO ITEM WEIGHT.
Gravel is essential for aquatic plantings. After properly potting up an aquatic plant, gently pack the soil on the surface around the base of the plant, and then cover the space remaing in the pot on top of the soil with Gravel. Not only is this the natural way for almost all aquatic plants to grow (in nutrient rich soil, covered in packed Gravel), but it will also help to restrict soil from coming out of the container as the plant grows, or gets moved from time to time. Larger koi love to suck soil out of lily pots to expose tasty plant roots, but they won't be able to when the soil is protected with Gravel! Some aquatic plants, especially submersible ones like Anacharis, can be planted directly into a small pot of just Gravel (as shown in picture.)For most however, soil is needed to provide necessary fertilizer for maximum growth speed, health, and blooming capabilities. One bag is approximately 1-gallon, enough to cover the surface of one large lily tub. *NOT FOR SHIPPING DUE TO ITEM WEIGHT.
