My 2 week old pond is pretty greenish brown, I know/hope that will change. Plants and more plants help, right? Well I coulda swore I read some different opinions on here whether potted plants help or if the roots have to be exposed. I have about 8 plants right now and only the hyacinth and iris plants aren’t potted. \n\nIs there a consensus? Will potted plants help clean the water or do I need to get them outta pots and rooted in gravel on a shelf?
