Aquatic Planting Soil Media

Aquatic Planting Soil Media

Water plants should honestly never be planted with stones on the roots or surrounding them. This is likely the leading misinformation in the United States when it comes to planting aquatic plants. They would not be found in nature like this, new growth is severely stunted from the stones and gravel leading to sick weak or even dead plants. Larger plants may be able to withstand it but newly divided or nursery plants suffer greatly. 

Pond Plants, Lotus, Waterlilies... should be planted in very heavy loam soil. Start with a clay base (ALL NATURAL CLAY KITTY LITTER, no fresheners or deodorizers can be used as a start for the loam making 50 to 70% of the makeup. Cheap topsoil is great for 30-50% of the makeup. Sand can also be used if topsoil is not available but wont add any real benefits for the plant. Clay will bind to the fertilizer needed for waterlilies and lotus, both heavy feeding plants. The topsoil is a great backup for nutrients the clay cannot provide itself. 

Avoid composts and potting soil, they have organic material that is not yet broken down. The organic material will leach into the water and cause algae and water issues.
