API Pond Aquatic Planting Media

Potted aquatic plants like water lilies, iris, and many other pond plants are grown in containers within the pond. Potted plants need to be divided and repotted every one to two years to keep the plants vigorous and blooming. Heavy clay soil, free of loose organic matter and pesticides is used by professional pond plant growers. Unfortunately high-quality soil suitable for use with aquatic plants is not readily available to the majority of water gardeners. All commercially available potting soils contain combinations of sand, composted organic matter, peat moss, vermiculite, and even fertilizer and wetting agents. Using these types of soils in a pond leads to disastrous results. The loose fluffy soil floats in the water. The added fertilizers leach into the water and stimulate algae growth.

Aquatic Planting Media is an aquatic plant soil comprised of a unique blend of natural minerals, including zeolite, which provides a clean, easy to use planting media for water gardeners. Aquatic Planting Media securely holds the plants in the pot so plants can form a strong root system. With the addition of zeolite, Aquatic Planting Media has the added benefit of high Nutrient Holding Capacity. Zeolite is a naturally occurring mineral having a honeycomb-like layered crystal structure. The zeolite acts as a reservoir for nutrients which are slowly released as needed by the plant. Aquatic Planting Media helps plants grow by trapping and holding nutrients from aquatic fertilizer tablets that otherwise could leach into the pond. Aquatic Planting Media will also remove nutrients from the pond water, concentrating them in the root zone for uptake by the plants. Aquatic Planting Media is recommended for all potted aquatic plants such as water lilies, lotus, iris as well as bog plants. Aquatic Planting Media will not change pH or color the pond water.
