Will this work in a koi pond?

Asked by: Irv
Hi Irv! Why sure it will work in a koi pond! The challenge with keeping Koi in a pond with pond plants is that Koi get very aggressive in the spring during mating season. This activity will often lead to them uprooting and often tearing up the plants that are potted making a very messy situation. If there is a way to build a barrier between the plants and the koi, even for a period of time during this special season, the plants will appreciate it. Try putting larger rocks than the koi can move or building a rock wall within your pond. The soil will generate plenty of plant growth but it will not magically resist the efforts of the mating Koi. Goldfish can be lots of fun and are much nicer to your plants!

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

Asked by: 3inatree
I found some soft side pots specifically made for aquatic plants. To prevent soil from floating out of the pots, I put small pebbles on top of the soil which worked very well in keeping the soil in place. Home Depot sells small decorative pebbles that are used for house plants. If you buy river pebbles, I recommend rinsing them first.

can Dynadirt be used outside of ponds

Asked by: Randee
Hi Randee! This is a good question. When used by itself outside the pond it will tend to hold a lot of water and unless you are planting plants that need a lot of water this soil may not work best for you. It can certainly be mixed with your own garden soil or potting soil that you choose to grow in but it may take some experimenting with the correct proportions to make your plants happy.
