At our aquatic nursery we propagate tropical day and night blooming lilies, marginal, floating and submerged plants. We choose mostly tropical lily varieties that are free blooming so your new pond always has color. We supply plants with all the gardens we build, maintain and to the wholesale market only. We are not a retail location.

Lilies can be set in your pond with 6 inches to 3 feet of water over the pot. They will adjust to the water depth in a few days. Lilies should be fertilized monthly with aquatic plant tabs at the rate of two tabs per gallon of pot. A full 3 gallon pot gets 6 tabs per month. Using a stick or your finger, poke a hole in the soil towards the bottom of the pot and not below the crown of the plant and set the tabs. Cover the tabs with soil on the pot. Trim off dead leaves with scissors and remove from pond. Lilies can be set in larger containers using plain black topsoil. The larger the container the larger the plant and blooms. Do not use potting soils as they will rot roots in an aquatic pot and float out.
Marginal or Bog Plants
Most Marginal plants want only a couple of inches of water over their pot and will do well in wet boggy soil. You can use bricks or crates to elevate them if you don’t have a plant shelf. We rarely fertilize marginal plants as they need less and we want them to get their nutrients from the pond helping to keep the water clear. When repotting use plain black topsoil. Do not use mixed potting soils as they will rot roots in an aquatic pot and float out. Trim off dead leaves and remove from pond. The larger the container the larger the plant and blooms. Most marginal’s can also be added bare root. Simple pin down with a rock or brick.
Rush Variegated Baumea rubiginosa variegate
Submerged and floating plants are the real workhorse of a balanced system and clear water. They shade the water and remove excess nutrients therefore starving algae. These can simply be placed in the pond or you can pin them down with a rock or brick as you see fit.
