We recommend in particular two of the water plant species. The free swimming aquatic plants (Pleustophyten) and those that stick (Hydrophyten) on or in the soil. The free swimming plants are divided into those that float freely as such many water hoses (Utricularia) under water and those remain on the surface. The free swimming on the surface are the water hyacinth, the floating fern, and the most duckweed.

The second group of suitable water plants is divided into those who live entirely under water like for example basic nettle, many light herbs, seaweed species, water spring, Elodea and Mermaid herbal plants. Others that assimilate partly over the water, are the so-called floating foliage plant such as Lotus plants, sea containers, family and arrowhead.

You must remember that the minimum depth of the tank should be 10 cm in any case, it is absolutely necessary for the prosperity of most aquatic plants. Choose the best place for your mini garden pond. Secure approximately 6 hours of sunlight a day. Shaded areas are not suitable for the target. The ideal water for the pond would be soft rain water. You can use tap water of course without hesitation, if this a pH value is about 6-6.5. It would be even better if you leave the water the night before you put the plants in. Use pebbles, placing under and on the potting soil. Best for larger stones when you want to arrange the pond in stages.
