Oxygenating Plants

Oxygenating Pond Weed Bunches & Plants

Considered one of the most Important groups of plants in the pond. An oxygenator is the term applied to a wide variety of fast growing plants.Originally so named because it was thought that they give out oxygen constantly though like all plants they give out oxygen during the day and use it up at night. Their primary benefit in a pond is their ability to grow rapidly,using nutrients that would otherwise be used by algae such as blanket weed. By occasionally thinning the oxygenators in the pond, a good healthy balance can be maintained.
