    When to remove plants

    I purchased a bog bean earlier this year but all I have time to do is set it on a ledge in the pond in it's original container. What should I do with it over the winter? My plan is to build a bog next spring.

    Things on my leaves

    I think this is a better picture. Meyer this is my first lotus and I'm afraid to remove the dying leaves because I've read I can actually kill the plant.

    Things on my leaves

    Can you tell me what those little black specks are on my lotus and lily leaves? Some of them look like really tiny silver confetti and some are just black. They are SOOOOOOO little I can't even tell if they are alive. I washed them off last weekend BUT they are right back. Thank you

    Propagating a lily

    addy1 - I have some of mine in great big round lotus pots (only one lotus seed made it) - BUT I read somewhere (must not have been on here) - that lilies like to be crowded so I was going to re-pot them in smaller square lily pots. Do you think that is unnecessary/unwise? I also read that the...

    What is this plant?

    I looked up - hemianthus callitrichoides 'Cuba' and I agree that it would be pretty neat if was actually that. BUT I don't think that is what it is. I've attached another photo. Mine isn't nearly as plush as the photos I found of "Cuba". Mine is very spindly. Thanks for all your help.

    What is this plant?

    I have this plant growing in my irrigation ditch. I was wondering what it was and if I should try and get it to grow in my goldfish pond? Thank you.

    JB's Pond

    JB I love the first video of the Mallard Duck. I hope it is okay to ask a question about it here - my daughter has 3 Swedish Blue Ducks and when they got into my fish pond that absolutely attacked my goldfish. They cornered them in the shallow parts and I thought they would eat them before we...

    Lotus question

    Thank you - I think spring is finally here - should I set them out in the pond or let them get a little stronger in the house? I appreciate very much all of your advice.

    Lotus question

    Addy1 do you think these might still make it or am I just prolonging the inevitable? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated - thank you.

    Lotus question

    I started 12 from seeds that I bought off E-Bay. 10 of them sprouted. 9 of them sent up three small leaves. Only 2 of them ever got any bigger leaves (and they are not very big at all). All of them are looking pretty sickly right now - edges turning brown and crinkly. I don't think I am...

    Information on lotus

    Linus_Cello - this is the WRONG type of tub. They came in a set of 5 (from Amazon I think) and were fairly inexpensive BUT have holes in the bottom - I thought I could glue some pond liner over the holes and make them water tight. So far it has been nothing but a hassle. I finally went to...

    Information on lotus

    ( I cannot get it to rotate - sorry). Addy1 will this work for my lotus? It is about 11.5" deep. Or should I cut the top off so that it isn't so deep. Thank you.

    Information on lotus

    Can I use the Wal-Mart oil pans for my lotus? I have 14 sprouting and I can't really afford that many expensive lotus pots. If not do you know of a cheaper option?
