Oxygenating Plants

Oxygenating plants are essential to help provide a natureal balance in the pond. These green plants grow up from the bottom of the pond with their leaves submerged and producing oxygen by photosynthesis. This increases the oxygen in the water benefiting pond life.

They should comprise around 25% of your display. Potted oxygenators do not need to be submerged in your display. 5cm of water is sufficient.
