Grow Notes
Grows in full sun to part shade, preferring moist, boggy soil. Suitable for sandy, loamy, clay, and poor drainage situations.

It will die back a bit in Winter but will re-shoot in Spring. As a macrophyte it also helps in the removal of nutrients from storm water runoff. Quick to establish after planting and good for preventing erosion in wet areas and banks. Frost tolerant.

Sow
Sprinkle seeds on top of damp soil, 1mm deep, and cover very lightly with soil. Use a pot with a saucer of water underneath to maintain soil dampness.

Once germinated keep it in a shady spot with adequate water. Plant out into your pond or larger pots when it’s about 10 to 15cm.

10-60 days at 18-22°C
