Hello All,

I have a skippy filter in my small pond. It is on a shelf. The water pumps in the bottom and then flows over the top. I had what I thought was the right pump, but the wife complained the water noise wasn't enough. So I put in a bigger pump giving more water noise and higher flow.

I wonder if I can root sweet potato vine in the top of my skippy. Any thoughts on this? If not, any other ideas?

Sure! You can put pretty much any pond plant in the filter - floating plants, marginals, etc. Just watch the roots - they can take over and be tough to dislodge!

Thanks everyone. I was afraid of brisk flow would negate being able to grow anything.

I put impatiens in the rocks on the side of my waterfall and they are growing great. Only had one wash out from the rocks into the pond. I would give the vine a try, it should look nice.
