Welcome to Pond Megastore! Please give Jennings a few minutes of your time to explain and answer common questions about the entire experiece about what is to be expected when ordering from Pond Megatstore.
Never worry about algae again after you watch Jennings explain the 3 causes. There are suggested solutions based on what the cause is. There is no answer that fits all so lets explore the situation together!
Jennings will describe a good size container, the proper planting matrix, and the fertilizer schedule of annual water lilies which need temperatures of 72 degrees or warmer. Keeping these plants happy will have them blooming daily into fall with ease!
A hardy water lily has a different root system than the annual or tropical lily. They can survive cold winters under the ice but also need a much wider container to grow and flower properly. Follow these easy steps!
Most all our plants need to stay cool and hydrated. Let us begin by getting a few buckets of pond water to a shady side of the house and acclimate these plants properly for the first 48 to 72 hours before putting in sunlight. Do not take indoors to acclimate, that is too dark.
Must Watch! Please never wait to address an issue, even the smallest concern. We are requiring issues with delivery be reported in the first 24 hours so we know they are attended to and the issue lies with delivery or before. If at any time after arrival plants show signs of stress please contact us immedietly so we can solve an issuw before it is too detrimental to correct.
Laura Bancroft sits down with Amy to discuss a few of our very favoirte deep red lotus like Xi bei po, Titan, Red Shanghai, and more!
Ken Landon & Tim Davis from the International Waterlily Collection in San Angelo show us how they divide and replant a hardy waterlily. This is important to keeping the water lily plants flowering freely.
Though we still need you to follow our planting instructions and acclimating plants guide when taking them out of the box. These plants are some of the very easiest we can get you started with. Jennings Brower mentions some very easy bog plants (for shallow water), hardy water lily varieties, and some floating plants that are not used as often as they should.
This depends on the time of year you place the order. In late winter and spring live orders are usually held until proper planting time. Schools and labs buy plants all year, check with us by phone or email if you need something in the chilly part of the year and we can let you know before ordering if we can ship that right out.
We ship Live plants Monday - Wedsnday each week until June 1. After June 1 we usually only ship live plants on Mondays and Tuesdays. Your order must be in the previous weekday by 9:30 AM Eastern Time in order to be processed and prepped for shipping the next day. Orders placed after 9:30am Eastern on the last preperation day of the week (Tuesday or Wednsday) will then be held until the following week for shipping. 2, 3, or 4 day shipping is the Transit time. Transit does not account for the processing time which could be 1 day or as many as 5 in hot summer weather when we ship only at the beginning of each week.
Non live goods ship Monday - Thursday. Many plant items ship from the nursery with the plant order (like fertilizer). Many non-plant items like fish food ship from our warehouse and ship separate from the other items on the order. Live fish and Bulk Tadpole order ship Monday-Thursday each week. Please see out videos on how to acclimate Fish, Tadpoles, and Live Plants before ever placing the order so that things go smooth and simple for you and the live products!
