Every pool needs oxygenating plants. These plants grow under water similar to plants you see growing naturally in ponds and lakes. They absorb excess nutrients from the water and liberate oxygen during the day, which helps to clear the water and helps to prevent the growth of algae that cause green water.

Oxygenating plants are indispensable when fish are present, as they set up a balanced or natural condition of the water. They also will assist materially in raising a hatch of baby fish, as the young fish find much needed shelter and protection among the foliage.

All oxygenators can be planted bare root into a gravel bottom Aquascape pond. If you have a rubber lined pond, they are best planted in groupings in large shallow pots, then placed on the pond bottom. A good planting ratio for oxygenators would be one plant for every 5 square feet of pond surface area.

Submerged Oxygenating Plants available from May 1st to Sept 30th
