API® AQUATIC PLANT MEDIA is an aquatic plant soil recommended for all potted aquatic plants, including water lilies, lotus, iris, and bog plants. It is comprised of a unique blend of natural minerals, including zeolite, which provides a clean, easy-to-use planting media which does not float or cloud water. AQUATIC PLANT MEDIA traps and holds nutrients from aquatic fertilizer tablets that otherwise could leach into the pond, securely holding the plant in the pot. This product is safe for use with fish and may be used during spring start-up, or when adding new plants to your pond.
Add about 3 inches of pre-soaked AQUATIC PLANT MEDIA into bottom of pot or basket. Arrange the plant roots into the pot and gently cover roots with plant media and fill the pot to about 1 inch from the rim. Top off with stones. Slowly lower the pot into the pond.
