TRIP PLANTS

Floating plants are natural filters for your pond or aquarium. The roots of floating plants remove harmful substances from the water. The leaves of these floating plants keep the sometimes bright sun out of the water and prevent algae growth. In addition, these plants provide shelter for your fish and other aquatic animals. In addition to these practical benefits, floating plants will transform your water feature into a paradise.

Floating plants for the aquarium

Floating plants are good oxygen providers and therefore very important in an aquarium. They also filter waste products from the water and provide a hiding place for fish. In addition, they look beautiful in an aquarium.

Besides in an aquarium, floating plants are also excellent for decorating a bowl or vase. Suitable plants for this purpose are, for example, the rafting(Salvinia natans) and oxygen plant Marimo moss ball(Chladoflora aegagropila).

Floating aquatic plants

A popular species from the floating pond plant category is crabgrass(Stratiotes aloides), a floating plant with sword-shaped leaves, native to Eurasia. This floating plant blooms from May to July with white flowers and is a popular oxygen plant in many ponds.

Functioning of floating plants

These plants absorb waste products and provide shade that will make the water less likely to heat up. Aquatic animals also find a place to hide under floating aquatic plants.

The name says it all: floating plants are plants that float on the water. They are important oxygen providers and provide shade in the pond or aquarium. This is important to prevent algae growth.

It is definitely advisable to place floating plants in an aquarium. In addition to producing oxygen and absorbing waste products, they also provide a hiding place for the fish present in the aquarium.

Some examples of floating plants that do well in an aquarium are: raft fern(Salvinia natans) and water nut(Trapa natans). These are fast-growing plants that can become rampant. Fortunately, you can very easily disassemble these floating aquatic plants and remove the excess.

Floating plants are easy to order online with us. They are delivered from our own nursery and carefully packaged to your home.

Planting crabgrass is done by placing the young plants near the pond side, among the riparian and marsh plants. Larger plants are left floating in the pond. Crabgrass is a perennial plant that blooms in early summer, and in the fall it sinks to the bottom to overwinter.
