Mail Order: What To Expect

Plants you receive by mail need time to adjust. Your plants will arrive in bundles. Upon arrival, they may not appear lush but given time & proper care, they will flourish!

Planting Instructions

Simply place in water and plant will float freely. For more information on caring for your aquatic plants or snails please visit our Learning Center. To review the planting instructions for your new plants, please click here.


Fertilization is typically not needed for Sensitive Plant as they take excess nutrients from your pond water. If needed, Microbe-Lift® Bloom & Grow™ can be used.

Plant Maintenance

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.

Winter Care

In Zones 8 and lower, discard Sensitive Plant after the first hard frost.
