Some handy tips:
- Divide & re-pot your plants annually. A growing plant blooms better and more frequently and remove nutrients from the pond water that would otherwise fuel algae growth. Root-bound plants grow very slowly and have fewer blooms.
- Fertilize with a good plant tablets monthly. Highland Rim makes one of the best fertilizer tablet on the market. It is more expensive, but it is larger than other tablets and has a great formulation. Water lilies and lotus do extremely well with this fertilizer.
