I am looking to establish some more oxygenator plants in my existing pond as well as the new, smaller pond that I finished in September. The problem I have is that anacharis and hornwort are not available in Oregon anymore. I have some existing plants that I bought several years ago, however. I would just like to know of an alternative submerged plant that
might be acceptable in Oregon now.
Thanks, John

Will be curious to see the responses. The way things are going with invasive plants, it soon might be hard to find anything that is "legal" in a given area.

I keep my little ponds full of the stuff, so if they ban it here, I still have it. Of course no dumping in waterways.

Have you checked with other pondkeepers in your area. If anyone has any, they are likely to have more than they need and would be happy to share. In most, if not all, states, possession of a listed specie by a pond owner is not a crime.

Good point, Meyer! Always check the WORDING of your state law, and NEVER get rid of excess plants, or anything else, for that matter, by tossing it into a local pond, creek, or any waterway!
