how big is the diameter of the pot it comes in?

Asked by jj April 14, 2018
1
Answer

The diameter of the pot is just a bit over 4 inches. It will contain a very good start of this rapidly growing aquatic plant.

is this plant fragrant

Asked by keesler July 6, 2016
1
Answer

The flower of this plant is not fragrant. If the plant is handled and the leaves crushed, there is a pungent fragrance. This Red Stemmed version of Lizard's Tail is grown more for its vibrant red stem and unusual long white flowers than it is for its fragrance.

do i just put it in the bottom of the pond?

Asked by danny June 15, 2016

Answer

Danny, the Lizards Tail you got your dad is a very versatile and hardy bog plant. It will do fine in the shade and in varying depths of water. I would start it out along the edge of the pond with the top of the pot at the pond's surface. After a few weeks you can lower it to a depth of 2 - 4 inches below the surface. This plant will spread easily and has an attractive white spike-like flower. Enjoy!

what happens when plant does not grow?

Asked by john January 7, 2015
1
Answer

There is usually a reason why pond plants do not grow., sometimes several reasons. It is difficult to answer this question without more information. Some reasons are: chemical warfare-using algecides to eliminate algae can harm other plants; too much moving water-some plants don't like a lot; lack of sunlight-too much shade and more... One of my guidelines is: if my fish are healthy, my water clarity is good and my plants are living, just enjoy! Hope this helps...

Unhealthy looking leaves
I was disappointed to find the black spots on the leaves of this plant when I unwrapped it. I don't know what it is, or if it some kind of disease that will end up killing this plant. For the price, I would expect a healthier plant.
