Product Overview

Givhandys and Home Depot offers you the Real Deal. DynaDirt is a true aquatic soil that is a natural mix made up of Florida reed sedge peat and sand. This makes for a very heavy soil great for aquatic plants. Ideal for all aquatic plants from water lilies to bogs/marginals.
  • DynaDirt has been used for over 20 years to grow aquatic plants by growers in Florida and Georgia, its long term use reflects a reliable and successful planting mix, proven to be a valuable mix for growers and pond keepers
  • Soil works best when dampened, not soaked, before planting, you never want to put soil above the crown of a plant, instead, leave a slight bit of the crown above the soil's surface
  • Always place a 1/4 in. or so, of sand to top off your planting, if you have large fish, you may consider topping off with pea gravel - the larger the fish, the larger size of pea gravel
  • Freshly potted plants should be placed in shallow water to start with, this will give your plants time to get well rooted and for the soil to settle without fishy interference, 2 weeks should be sufficient time
  • Koi fish are notorious for uprooting pond plants, during mating season they can absolutely create a mud pit of your pond given access to freshly planted plants, beware give newly potted plants as much time, 3 to 4 weeks, to get established in your container before introducing them into a Koi pond

JUST What I needed!! It works GREAT in the pond! I used it in fabric pots, and it stays put really well and doesn't wash away like the soil I had!! Leaves the water WAY cleaner!!! LOVE that!! Will use again!! And the plants seem to love it too, because they have more than doubled in size since transplanting!!

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!

My water lilies are growing, but the product was not what I expected. It’s more like potting soil or peat moss than aquatic media. The dirt is too light weight to be submerged on its own, even in a mesh bag. Luckily, I had the gravel-type media to layer on top, or it would be a total mess. Even so, my once clear water feature is now tobacco-colored. I won’t purchase Dynadirt again.

Not what you expect.
Might be good soil but was shipped wet. 10 pounds is pretty small and therefore very pricey when its wet. I've purchased plant soil from a number of suppliers in the past, this is the first time I've seen it like this. I can add my own water thanks. Won't buy from them again.
