  • ✔ BEAUTIFUL, BRIGHTLY COLORED AQUATIC PLANT --- Native to South-East Asia, the vibrant green giant hygrophila is commonly used in aquascaping for many reasons besides its natural beauty. The reasonable hardiness and stem reaching to 1.5-3 inches wide and 10-15 inches high make this live aquarium tropical plant perfect for freshwater aquariums especially large tanks.
  • ✔ IMPROVES WATER COLOR AND QUALITY --- All plants have the ability to convert carbon dioxide into much needed oxygen that fish and aquatic life require in order to survive. Plants also absorb CO2 and nitrates produced by fish waste creating a natural ecosystem and healthy habitat for your fish. The best thing about hygrophila is that it grows fast and helps keep aquarium water clean by removing nitrates, making it an ideal choice for the new aquarists.
  • ✔ EXCITING, INTERACTIVE ENVIRONMENT FOR AQUATIC PETS --- This undemanding and extremely attractive giant hygrophila covers a large surface in just a short span of time creating a stunning, dynamic underwater environment. It is completely safe for betta, shrimp, mollies, guppies and other freshwater fish to play in.

The plant requires moderate sunlight and thrives in 74°- 82°F water temperature having an alkalinity of 3 to 8 dKH and a pH of 6.5-7.5. Since this carpet plant grows quickly, it is recommended to trim it regularly and give it a high amount of sunlight to thrive.
  • ✔ NATURALLY SPREADS ACROSS YOUR TANK --- When they are young, they look like the most popular carpeting plants, and when they completely grow, they form dense, lush stem plants over the floor of your tank. The regular trimming will keep these plants flat onto the ground creating a lush and gorgeous aquascape for you and your visitors. To promote even quicker growth, simply remove a few leaves from the bottom 1" to 2" of the stem, and new root growth will form from the last node on the stem.

Pond and Bog Plants: The Rushes

Rushes can add a vertical dimension to the bog or pond that plays off the softer broadleaf and floating plants.

The horsetail or scouring rush (family equisetaceae, genus equisetum, species hyemaile) is the oldest plant used by mankind that has not changed since it was found in fossil form. This plant will grow as high as 4-feet in full sun and is hardy to USDA zone 3a. Horsetail has a striking shape and texture with its round, hollow, segmented spikes sticking up in your pond. Do be careful with horsetail. Keep it in a pot in the water so you can control it. If you put it in the ground, expect to have it everywhere, especially where you don't want it. It can easily poke its head up in the neighbor's yard if you are not careful.

The corkscrew rush (family junaceae, genus juncus, species effusus) has a curly habit befitting its name. It is not a big rush, growing only 12-18-inches tall, but hardy to USDA zone 4a. Use this rush in full sun to part shade for interest around the edges of your pond or bog. It is just right for a contrast to broadleaf emergents or floating water lily pads.

The zebra rush (family cyperaceae, genus schoenoplectus, species lacustris, cultivar zebrinus) is grown for it smooth-textured, shiny variegated foliage. As horsetail does, it also grows straight up, but alternates green and white stems every few inches. This, as most of the rushes and reeds is grown for its foliage rather than any bloom. The zebra rush reaches 3 - 4-feet tall and is hardy to USDA zone 4a and will grow in sun or part shade.

The goldstrike rush (Juncus effusus 'goldstrike') offers interest to the pond or bog because it has a bright yellow stripe running vertically up and down the stem. Like most of the spiky rushes, it grows fast and spreads just as fast, so keep it in a pot. You can grow it in sun or part shade and watch it grow to almost 3-feet tall by mid summer. There is an insignificant flower that arrives in midsummer but the plant is grown for its foliage, not for its bloom.

These are only a few of the spiky rushes you can use in your pond or bog. Rushes add a dimension to the waterscape that adds interest and catches the eye. Use them along the edges of your pond with the top of the pot about 1-inch below the surface of the water. Do be careful with all of them because they can spread if allowed to. Always check with your local extension service to find out if they are legal in your state as they can be classified as noxious weeds.
