Floating plants

Floating plants perform a fundamental function for the aquatic biotope: help the constructed wetlands with their floating roots absorb the organic load in the water and limit the formation of single-celled algae that give the green color to the water, produce oxygen, and provide shelter the fish fry of fish and dragonflies. Their fast growth increases the shading of ponds. Floating plants are on sale from March to October, season permitting.
