How To Add New Water Lettuce Plant

In this post I share a short video featuring a water lettuce plant review.  See how the plant is doing in my dome greenhouse koi pond.  Super easy steps on how to ensure the plant does well with fish.

How To Add New Water Lettuce Plant

As you can tell in the video below it is important to keep the koi from eating the roots of the new water lettuce plants.  Since the the plants arrived in such great shape with healthy roots I want to make sure the fish do not eat on them.  I am using a pond basket that has a rubber hose insert that helps it float.  The basket works perfect with a 4″ drop so the fish can’t reach the roots.  Check out the video in this post if you haven’t already.  This will give you a better idea of what is going on in the pond.

Check back soon to see how the plants are doing.  These are super fun and I know from growing water lettuce in previous years it will love the pond water multiplying quickly.

Shipping The Water Lettuce Bundle

I am super happy with the shipment from The Plant Place on Etsy.  The water lettuce bundles in this photo cost me about $21.  The well packaged shipment arrived 4 days after my order was placed.  This was super handy because it saved me time and gas money!

More About Water Lettuce

This is not my first time growing water lettuce.  I have just not been so lucky with wintering the plant over in my home garden.  Maybe in the next winter season I will bring the plant indoors to grow in a well lite fish tank or something?!  STAY TUNED!  In the mean time here are some of my favorite posts

NOTE: Water lettuce is a tropical aquatic plant, thriving in warm water (72- 86F) and only growing when the water temperature is above 60F. It is extremely frost-sensitive and will not tolerate freezing temperatures*
