Oxygenating plants are very beneficial to a pool as the submerged leaves provide oxygen to fish and a wide range of pond life. Photosynthesis occurs beneath the surface of the pool creating oxygen which dissolves in the water. The emergent leaves form attractive rafts on the surface. In addition, fish & insects use the oxygenating plants for cover, shade & breeding.


PCN sell oxygenating plants potted & as weighted bunches:

Planting & Maintenance

Oxygenating plants are vital for the balance of a pond. However, if conditions are not suitable for the variety introduced they will not survive. Conversely if conditions are ideal they will normally require maintenance periodically to remove surplus plants.

PCN has the knowledge & experience to recommend the best varieties of plant for each aquatic environment. eg hornwort grows better in a natural, shady, silty pond whereas crispa is better suited to a spring fed pond with ph neutral or above.

PCN also clear & maintain ponds with excess oxy plants to maintain an ideal balance.
