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

can I use reg potting soil for Christmas cactus

Asked by jack September 30, 2020
2
Answers

Hi Jack! I do not have a lot of experience with Christmas cactus as we deal with pond plants. DynaDirt is probably not your best choice of soils as it tends to hold water. I honestly don't have a good answer for you but I would think a good quality potting soil would do the job.

What would say the volume is in a 10 lb bag?

Asked by Mark July 22, 2020

Answers

i would say it is enough for two plants in plastic mesh aquatic pots and some p-gravel on top to keep the soil from floating out when you put them into the water.

can Dynadirt be used outside of ponds

Asked by Randee May 1, 2020
3
Answers

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.

Full sun is best but plants will still thrive in a mostly sunny area

Is the compost clear of weed seeds?

Asked by Doorknob August 13, 2019
3
Answers

Hi Doorknob! We have asked the producer and bagger of this soil about this. They have told us that the reed sedge peat is collected near their facility and does not go through any sterilization process which would be very costly. Without any additional steps to kill weed seeds, I think it would be safe to say there are weed seeds in this soil mix. The good news is that most of the seeds are from native aquatic plants. The producer has assured us that the process to eliminate weed seeds would be cost prohibitive. Aside from a small percentage of fertilizer, this mix is essentially organic.

can this go in a fish tank for a planted tank

Answers

Hi Kim! That question has come up several times and while I do not have any personal experience using DynaDirt for this purpose, there are hobbyists out there that are currently testing it for aquarium use. The results look promising at this time, but the final results will not be known until early next year. I will update the results when they become available.

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!!

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!
