I hear dishpans work well too. I'm not sure on their price compared to other containers, though.
They don't like corners, I had one in a pan like that it really grew weird and not the best. At least mine didn't round works the best for mine.
I'm pretty excited ! I bought oil pans at Walmart yesterday - think they were $3.97. I also bought the plain clay kitty litter. After stopping at the fish hatchery for information, I worked osamocote really well into the kitty litter, making sure none was floating on the top. I bought a more sturdy plastic fencing that the bird netting I've use before, and covered and zip tied the pans
I place two of the Sunset Perrys ( not rue I got the name correctO0 on top of my predator rock, as it's raised off the bottom, in hope they'll get a good start there. It is close to my waterfall, which is kind of powerful ( not on at the moment), so want to learn how to regulate the flow of it, to make it more gentle.
Thank you so much Addy for the lilies! Now onto building a little container bog / snippy, for my bog plants
P.S. After the waterfall, I'm going to work on float in baskets - priced wreath forms and pots at Walmart yesterday.
Sounds great, just remember lilies do not like a lot of moving water. Splash can spot the leaves too.
After shipping out 62 boxes of plants, last five going today or tomorrow..............I am out of plants..............until next year
Mine arrived today. Thank you so much I am sure that was a lot of work. I wasn't expecting such monsters. Sometimes the dollar store by my house has baskets with about 1/2 inch holes that I planted some of mine in before. Its just a plastic storage basket.
Hi addy. Am I too late to get some of the lilies?
I would really like a few of these for my two ponds, I had water lettuce growing last year, but none seemed to have survived the freeze of winter. How would I go about arranging payment/shipping? (first time forum purchaser)
ok you two are the last................no more tubers.............all gone
Send me your real name and address via conversation, i.e private message. I will try to get them out of here tomorrow.
I just dumped out my bucket of tubers and found a few more, all have leaves on them some are small, no clue on the color. I had them in a dump out and get rid of bucket, since I was done shipping I thought.
This will make 64 boxes
lol I know.........out of tape, out of boxes, and I saved a lot of small ones , and took from our neighbor. ................ hundreds in postage, luckily all are honest upright ponders and paying the postage.
Got mine a few days ago. Thanks Addy!!
Addy, just curious, as you seem to always be just ahead of me as far as climate. Are your lilies all growing really well, or are some hanging back, below the surface? I have a few (Georgia Peach is one) that are on the surface, several pads, but most of mine are maybe 6-10" and not really growing. I have algae on the ponds and on the shelves, so not sure if that is inhibiting them, or if the cooler/warmer weather bouncing is causing them to be more patient with emerging fully.
Mine in the small preforms have leaves on the surface, warm slow flow water. The ones in the big pond, two have leaves on the surface, two in the stock tank leaves on the surface. Around 4 have buds showing. They are behind this year, but doing fine.
It has been a colder spring than "normal"
The toads had kids, the frogs are holding back, the fish are chasing.
OK, good. I know last year there was algae on the pots, too, but they just pushed right past that. The leaves are there, just not growing yet. I just have to be patient it appears.
They just started showing faster growth, all plants have leaves on you can see now, a lot still way under water. Probably didn't help that I ripped them apart, but they were way too large.
Yep, that's how mine have been for about a month or so, leaves, just not growing yet. Water temp was pretty warm, but now we are heading back down to lows in the 40's mid-week. Got 2.5" of rain in last 24 hours, so ponds are full and overflowing, good water change for sure!
We are predicted to get 6-8 inches of rain from today until thursday. huge water change. And cold and and and but do have around 6 lilies that are breaking the surface of the water. Way behind compared to last year, had blooms already last year.
I hope we have a long summer, pleasant fall, and mild winter to compensate for this weather transgression. Just sayin....
