Questions & Answers

Does this soil float out of the planter in the pond?

Asked by: 3inatree
This soil is a very heavy mix of Florida Reed Sedge Peat and sand. There is nothing in it that would float. It is recommended that when planting with any aquatic soil mix that you dampen the soil prior to submerging into the pond. An additional precaution to prevent the soil from "washing/leaching" out is to cover the soil with a layer of sand or pea gravel which is heavy and will help contain the soil. When placing the freshly potted plant in the pond, take extra care to submerge it very slowly. This will help contain the soil as well.

How many cubic feed will one 10lb bag fill?

Asked by: Minimuchken
Hi Minimuchken! Great question that I have never been asked before. According to the folks that bag this soil, the 10 lb bag of DynaDirt is the equivalent of .25 cubic feet. I hope this helps! Thank you, Andy

Hi! I am looking for a substrate for use in a planted tank with fish. I am capping it with sand and using low light.

I am trying to find a substrate for a "low light low tech" tank that will use hardy plants (crypts, anubias, java fern, moss) with a betta. It will get sponge/canister filtration. This soil would be presented in 2 inches of depth and capped with another inch of coarse sand. I see this works for ponds, which are low-tech. So does this contain fertilizer of any sort?
Asked by: schroedingercat
Hi Schroedingercat! This soil contains trace amounts of time release fertilizer. It should be just enough to encourage new plant growth over time. I know one of our growers in Florida uses it to grow their aquarium plants, but they are not in an aquarium setting. You may want to try this soil on a small scale to observe results to make sure there are no adverse effects.

I know it says aquatic, but has anyone ever has success using this mix with garden soil for cacti?

Asked by: kris
Good question! This soil is basically 25% Sand and 75% Florida Reed Sedge Peat. I am always for trying things with plants, so I would say give it a try and see what happens! You may stumble on a mix that works for cactus. I do not know of any cases where DynaDirt has been used for this purpose.

10 lb. DynaDirt Aquatic Planting Soil Bag is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Aquatic Planting Media I bought a couple bags of this soil so that we could plant our Elephant Ear plants in our pond. We planted the Elephant Ear plants in pots so that we could put them into our pond and the Elephant Ear plants that was put into our pond grew twice as fast then the Elephant Ear plants that we had just in pots on our porch. It didn't take long before we had to transplant the Elephant Ears in the pond because they had out grown the pots. I know that they are from the swamps down in the south and they love water so that had helped some with the growing, but the one thing about plants in our pond is, we can't fertilize the Elephant ears in the pond but we did fertilize the ones that was just in pots on our porch and the ones in the DYNADIRT AQUATIC PLANTING SOIL still out grown the ones just in the pots. Finally they got so big that I could no longer keep them in the pond. So this dirt worked fantastic! And I would recommend this to everyone!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from turned my patio pond water muddy brown I used this soil to repot several pond lillies and marginal plants. One pot was the perforated basket type, and the others were fabric. I followed the instructions on the bag, and when I put the plants into the water as directed, brown water and fine sediment turned my entire 50 gal pond brown. To the point where I couldn't see the fish, rocks or anything. After three days, the water has cleared somewhat, and the pump is pulling some of the debris out of the water, but I suspect I'm going to have to replace most of the water in the pond and clean the bottom to restore clarity. Disappointed.
