Aquatic pond plants -An essential part of the eco-system

Aquatic pond plants bring a new level of beauty to any pond, but they are much more than just good looks!  Plants are the natural workers of a pond ecosystem. They use nutrients that fish are adding to the water and therefore become living filters!  Too many nutrients in the water can cause algae blooms.  Too much sun on the water can contribute to algae growth as well. While your plants are sitting there looking beautiful, they’re actively providing filtration. When plants cover 30 to 40% of the surface area of the pond, it will reduce the temperature of the pond, helping reduce algae blooms.
