Oxygenating Plant Collection
Considered one of the most important group of plants in a pond. An oxygenator is the term applied to a wide variety of plants.
Originally so named because it was thought that they give out oxygen constantly, although like all plants they give out oxygen during the day and use it up at night
Their primary benefit in a pond is as they grow, they use nutrients that would otherwise be used by algae such as blanketweed. By occassionally thinning the oxygenators in the pond, a good healthy balance can be maintained
They are also excellent microhabitats for aquatic wildlife, and make great sites for fish eggs to develop
