Microbe-Lift(r) Aquatic Planting Media
  • Encourage Plant Health
  • Does Not Cloud Pond Water
  • Safe For All Fish & Aquatic Life

Microbe-Lift® Aquatic Planting Media is made of 100% natural montmorillonite with an added beneficial bacteria to help with pond clarity. The neutral pH pebbles in Microbe-Lift® Aquatic Planting Media contain beneficial bacteria, retain oxygen and help absorb excess alkalinity for improved pond water quality. When used in a bog area, Microbe-Lift® Aquatic Planting Media helps reduce transplant shock, allow for a more efficient utilization of light, water and nutrients and retain water keeping the bog moist but not waterlogged. Microbe-Lift® Aquatic Planting Media Will not break-down, float, or cloud pond water. Microbe-Lift® Aquatic Planting Media contains no algae-promoting nutrients, fertilizers, compost, peat or harmful pesticides and is safe for use in ponds with fish.

How To Use

  • Remove Plants in solid pots with care.
  • Mix as little as 25% of Microbe-Lift® Aquatic Planting Media with the planting medium of your choice. Be sure to pick something heavier that will not muddy the water. You can use all Microbe-Lift® Aquatic Planting Media.
  • Half fill a lined aquatic planting basket with Microbe-Lift® Aquatic Planting Media mixture from Step 2. Place plant carefully into the basket. Fill with more Microbe-Lift® Aquatic Planting Media mixture from Step 2 around roots, gently adding more if necessary to bring the level to just below the rim of the basket.
  • Plants in small mesh pots can be kept in the pot to protect the roots.
  • Plant up in the same way as plants that have been taken out of their pots.
  • Top off the basket with a layer of only Microbe-Lift® Aquatic Planting Media. This will keep whatever potting ratio you used in place and will prevent fish from disturbing the roots and muddying the pond water.
