Pond Care Aquatic Planting Media with all natural zeolite. Potted plants need to be divided and repotted every one to two years to keep the plants vigorous and blooming.

Many potting soils contain a combination of sand, composted organic matter, peat moss, vermiculite, and even fertilizer and wetting agents. Using these types of solids in the pond leads to disastrous results. The loose fluffy soil floats in the water. The added fertilizers leach into the water and stimulate algae growth.
