- 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
