Plants you receive by mail need time to adjust. Your plants will arrive as: Bare Root (only root and little to no foliage), Bunches (several stems or groupings of plants) or as a Net Pot (roots with some foliage). Upon arrival, they may not appear lush but given time & proper care, they will flourish!
Regular fertilization of your Water Lily will keep it blooming and growing well all season long. CrystalClear® Thrive™ Aquatic Plant Fertilizer or TetraPond® LilyGro™ Aquatic Plant Food or Laguna Plant Grow Fertilizer Spikes can be pushed into the soil at planting time and from April through August, following all manufacturers' recommendation for fertilizer application rates.
For best results, trim or prune as leaves and flowers begin to turn yellow or brown, remove them completely, discarding them to keep as much excess organic material out of water-body as possible.
All leaves and stems will begin to die off as winter arrives. If planted directly into a area, plants should be left alone after trimming any dead foliage to 1 to 2" above the top of the water. Plants that are on plant-shelves, in planting containers, should be trimmed to 1 to 2" and then gently lowered into the ponds deeper water. All plants submerged before winter must be brought back up as soon as the ice has permanently thawed, and before any plant growth occurs. In Zones 6 and warmer, most pond plants can tolerate being left in place without moving them at all. Water Lettuce & Water Lettuce should be thrown away after the first hard frost.
Some plants included in the Small Aquatic Plant Package may be restricted in your state. Click on the desired aquatic plant above to view more information including shipping restrictions. Plants restricted in your state will be substituted with a non-restricted equivalent.
