Lincspplants Hottonia Palustris Oxygenating Pond Plant – Native Oxygenator (5)
Oxygenating plants are plants that are partly or totally submerged in a pond. These plants have a range of important roles within a pond. Oxygenators are fast-growing plants that during daylight hours absorb carbon dioxide and exchange it for oxygen. They then use it during the night, so its important to get the right amount for your pond. The primary benefit is to use the nutrients that algae would use. Oxygenators provide an excellent habitat for wildlife, as well as providing shade to a pond.
