What is an organic plant pond?
An organic plant pond is one that is filtered naturally by plants and microorganisms rather than by mechanical means such as pumps and filters. An organic plant pond uses substrate, which is home to beneficial bacteria that break down the waste produced by the fish and other organisms in the pond.
The plants in an organic plant pond play an important role in purifying the water. They absorb nutrients and excess minerals from the water, and produce oxygen. This creates a healthy and balanced ecosystem in which fish, insects and other animals can live.
Organic plant ponds are generally easier to maintain than traditional ponds because there is no need for expensive equipment and chemicals. In addition, they are aesthetically pleasing and can add a natural look to the garden.
In addition to an organic plant pond, there is also a natural pond. The big difference is that a natural pond does not need pond liner, substrate and bacteria and the pond comes into biological balance, through nature and mainly just the plants.
