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.
