I owe you guys the biggest THANKS there is!

So many members here with "pond knowledge" saved my fishies, and I am so grateful! I don't know what I would have done without your help.

njoynit sent me a Budweiser box FULL of plants, and look at them now!

I didn't know if they went IN the water or not, and was too embarrassed shocked to ask, so I planted them on the edges of the pond where it stays wet all the time. I must have done good, because as you can see, the plants are beautiful!

Gardencrazy sent me a huge assortment of water plants, and they are doing awesome, too.

My water started clearing up immediately when I put the plants in the water...it was just like magic! kissies

I have a picture of mine that has just started blooming but it's still in the camera and I shot it in the evening so I don't think it is going to be anygood. Hummmmmmm, here is one sort of like Cindy's I think. Mine are a much more common type I think.

New ponds take a while to find balance.

If your pond is not new, then the problem could be sunlight. Sunlight + shallow water = algae. More plants that float on the surface or trees planted to shade the pond would be your best bet.

If you already have adequate shading, I will list some NATURAL products that may help to clear your pond water.

microbe-lift

barley straw

Thank you we are going to try more floating flowers and maybe some straw. The pond is now 2 years old and it is 2ft deep and 8 feet wide and 12 feet long. So I am sure it needs more shade in it! We are considering digging it deeper. I did the original digging and Wished I hadnt wore out so fast and that I had done more research before I started. Trial and error will have to suffice for now though. And of course all the advice from the experts here!

francine,

I want a dozen at least. They are sooooo pretty I agree. The ones I have are just green or just red and one is split half green and half red which I thought was rather strange and they are all making babies but they are nothing compared to that one. That one wouldn't even have to bloom and it is gorgeous.

I wish I could take the credit. I bought them at walmart. Got 6 for 5.00 and that's the way they came. One was completely burgandy and one was half & half the rest are green. I have no idea if the division would be the same as the parent plant or just one color or the other. When it blooms I will definitely snap a picture and post it. They are a tuber(?) if it were a seed I would definitely send you some. But it gets kind of costly to send packages. And I don't know what customs would require to get it across the border.

You know you can always ask with me Fancine and probably everyone else on the forum. There are a bunch of special people here.

I haven't really researched cannas so I don't know to much about them. I guess I better huh? Washing floors? Want to come down and do mine too? Just kidding, I like the idea of just adding wildflower seeds to my dirty one and leting the flowers grow lol.

Well I guess I should do some cleaning too.
