This wouldn't have harmed the plant, other than the fact it may have got hot, which isn't the main issue if an issue at all.It did have a rough introduction, about 3 days after I placed it in the pond, one of my kids screwed with the fountain which drained the pond about 2/3 where it stayed until I noticed it several hours later.
The problem might not have been that the plant was exposed for a few hours, more likely that I had to replace most of the water which meant lost bacteria and lost nitrogen. And the added chlorine couldn't have helped.This wouldn't have harmed the plant, other than the fact it may have got hot, which isn't the main issue if an issue at all.
Without fish in your pond, your plants will need regular fertilization. You can use a granular or stick type fertilizer - create a hole in the soil and either dump or push the fertilizer into the hole and then press the hole back together with your fingers. I use an old wooden spoon handle that I keep with my garden supplies for just this purpose. That way you are sure you are fertilizing the plant itself and not the pond.I'd love to add some fish, but I really don't want to give the raccoons a reason to hang around.
