Questions & Answers

How many stems are included in the 4 inch pot?

Asked by: Curt
There is really no standard number of stems in a pot. A 4 inch pot is basically providing you a start of this plant. In the case of this plant, there are 2 main plants per pot with new stems emerging that will continue to multiply. Putting cuttings of this plant is certainly one means of propagating this plant. Another way is by plant division. This is a very versatile plant that serves as an aquatic plant in ponds as well as a landscape plant in many different applications. This particular plant is raised/grown in aquatic conditions, with its feet wet, but is easily adapted to other conditions.

Customer Reviews

4 in. Horsetail Reed Potted Bog/Marginal Pond Plant is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Native Wetland Plant This Horsetail Rush, also known as Scouring Rush, is a great native plant for use in American and Canadian wetland garden and pond plantings. It fills in well and can be used for a privacy screen or for a natural appearance. I gave it 4/5 stars because it was small and thin, but it is a great plant once it grows. It should be carried in stores. In response to a previous reviewer's confusion: It IS invasive in Australia and New Zealand, because it is NOT native THERE. However, it IS native in the USA and therefore cannot be invasive here. Being an aggressive spreader and being an invasive species are two very different things. An invasive species is not part of the native ecosystem and causes harm to the native ecosystem (not all non-natives are invasive, but all invasives are non-native). When in doubt check the USDA's Natural Resources Defense Council (plants . USDA . Gov without the spaces) and it will tell you if a plant is native, non-native, or invasive in your state.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stems are small (Oct/9/2015). I ordered 3 pots. Delivery was fast. Each pot has about 15-20 stems. Most stems are small and thin as red/black coffee plastic stirrer straws.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adds spunk to my pond I adore this plant and I love seeing it branch out from my pond. My regret is not buying more sooner.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought in Cailf? when looking at the HD web page it says that this Horsetail reed plant cannot be shipped to California... yet it was bought here in Tracy, CA. ?? I did some web surfing only to find out that the horsetail or Equisetum plant is band in Australia and a couple other countries...i did not find another nursery that would carry the "weed", as it has been called, because of its invasive characteristics...be carefull with this product...HDepot must know about this as the web page says it cannot ship to several states...this maybe beneficial for applications that need a ground cover for hillsides or rural areas. The horsetail breeds via spores...and spreads like a weed....planting by a pool could be an issue/problem.
