Just got a start with water gardening. I am using a large container for my little water garden. It's been in for 3 weeks now and is doing very well. I have a Perry's Baby Red water lily, a water mint, blue pickerel, a couple of water hyacinth, and a mosiac plant. Had my first bloom on the water lily 2 days ago. I know it's not a pond but it's been a thrilling experience for me. Looking forward to learning a lot here from the experts. If all continues to go well I would like to attempt a lotus in a container next spring.

Welcome to our group! Love the color of the lily, that is bright!

You will be tossing plants as the summer goes by!

I'm loving your mosaic plant - it's not hardy in my zone, but I'm tempted to get one anyway! Welcome!
