Oxygenating pond plants have submerged foliage and perform a number of important roles in the pond. They are known as oxygenators because during the day, when they are photosynthesizing, they absorb carbon dioxide from the water and give off oxygen. They also absorb minerals from the water. This process conditions the water. It helps to maintain a healthy balance in your pond and helps to reduce unwanted algae by taking up dissolved nutrients.
In addition to contributing to clear healthy water oxygenating pond plants provide shade and a good spawning area for fish. They create a hiding place for fry and a perfect home and breeding area for wildlife.
We supply most oxygenators as weighted bunches which can be simply dropped into the pond.
A number of good oxygenating pond plants are only available during the summer months. We will display these on our website when they become available.
