    Hyacinth flowers ???

    Wow very nice, well now that explains why the 2 that bloomed did so. both were sort of hemmed in so to speak well I know now what I'm going to do to mine this weekend. Thanks for that tip

    Hyacinth flowers ???

    Oh my, that must be beautiful to see them steady blooming. our fishies pretty much destroyed most of ours but I have been saving them and moving them to areas they can't get to them in hopes to have a nice batch next year at first they were spreading but now not so much wish I could say that...

    Hyacinth flowers ???

    wow, that makes me feel good. we have had 2 bloom :) I was experimenting with them and put one in a pot I have sunk in the bog to allow it to fill with water, I put one in it and it bloomed, it's funny because it was a small plant and it bloomed a tiny flower

    Hyacinth flowers ???

    just curious, we bought some hyacinth this year and put in the pond and we have had 2 flower. my question is is it normal for the flower to only last 1 day. also how often do they normally bloom. here was the first one

    Converting a Boat to Fish Pond

    I like your project, I'm looking forward to seeing it when it's done just a thought as for a filter. this would require a little extra work but might work well if you boxed in your transom area, IE cut out the bottom and build a wall against the front portion inside the boat then raise the rear...

    need help, what is this plant

    can we plant these in the bog just roots in the gravel or should I use something like kitty litter the root system seems kinda weak, or at least these little ones seem that way. right now I have them in the mud they were in.

    need help, what is this plant

    we were out riding our 4 wheeler over the weekend and happened across a big mud hole in it we found a bunch of these growing, they were nowhere else around just in the mud the little pods are flowers that open during the day and close at night. as best we can tell at some point the flowers die...

    Don't let this happen to you. How my pond nearly killed me

    Vanishing Plecos.

    maybe they just died and decomposed in the pond. one at a time you wouldn't have noticed it

    what might they be doing

    Goldfish don't guard their eggs -- they eat them! I kinda wondered about that, from everything I see on here that is what I thought we do have a large clay pot on it's side in there but I don't think they use it so I am going to take it out we now have some water lettuce and hyacinth that has...

    so many beautiful plants and flowers we have our first flower to speak of this year, it must have popped out this morning because it wasn't there last night

    what might they be doing

    here is a shot when he was a baby, the big one he is beside is the one he is hanging with

    what might they be doing

    pretty much the same ideas I had, just not sure why they started doing it now they seem perfectly fine and come out and swim around like everyone else they sit under there even once the sun has passed over enough that the pond is shaded completely I'm sure it's OK just seemed odd as its the...
