Floating pond plants are some of the most important plants for your water garden, as they reduce algae growth and provide protective cover for fish or other aquatic creatures. Floating plants are some of the fastest growing water plants, which allows them to compete with algae for nutrients and reduce algae growth. These are super easy to add to your water garden as no planting is required since floating plants draw their nutrients directly from the water. Just place the floating plants in your pond or water garden and your are good to go. Never release plants into public water they always make great compost if to many!
