Introducing DynaDirt – the perfect planting mix for your aquatic plants that is guaranteed not to foul your pond water, cause algae, or harm your fish. With over 20 years of proven success among botanical gardens and professional growers across the USA, DynaDirt is a reliable and valuable mix for pond keepers of all levels.
The secret to DynaDirt's success lies in its heavy loam soil and peat composition, which work best when dampened, not soaked, before planting. To ensure optimal growth, it is important to never put soil above the crown of a plant, but instead, leave a slight bit of the crown above the soil's surface. Top off your planting with a 1/4 inch or so of sand, as using gravel or stone can inhibit new growth and harm your aquatic plants.
Freshly potted plants should be placed in shallow water to start with, giving your plants time to get well rooted and for the soil to settle without fishy interference. Koi fish are notorious for uprooting pond plants, so it's important to give your plants 3 to 4 weeks to get established in your container outside the pond before introducing them into a Koi pond. This will help prevent any damage to your aquatic plants and ensure they have a chance to thrive.
Perennial Waterlilies require pots that are at least 15 inches wide or more, but they don't need to be more than 5 inches deep. Annual Waterlilies, on the other hand, don't travel across pots like perennial lilies do, so a smaller 2 or 3 gallon fabric pot is perfect for most backyard annual lilies. Bog/Shelf plants need a pot at least 1/3 of their maximum growing height to prevent them from falling over. Plant shelf plants as close to the water's surface as possible or at the water's surface, so their foliage is not wet.
For optimal results, use DynaDirt with WaterlilyWorld fertilizer Tablets on the first and 15th of each month during the growing season. This will ensure that your water garden is the most flowerful in the region!
In conclusion, DynaDirt is the perfect solution for any pond keeper looking to grow healthy and beautiful aquatic plants without harming their fish or fouling their pond water. With its proven success, ease of use, and reliable results, DynaDirt is the planting mix of choice for botanical gardens and professional growers across the USA.
