Oxygenators photosynthesise underwater creating oxygen which then dissolves. This is not only essential for all animal life, but also for bacteria which help keep the water clear. All bunched oxygenators benefit from their roots being pushed into the soil except for Ceratophyllum. Many oxygenating plants have two forms of foliage; submerse (below the water) and emerse (above the water) and they look very different. It is only foliage below the water that oxygenates the pond.
Our extensive range of oxygenating plants have different requirements. Hence we sell them in different formats; container grown, bunches, tub or planted in gravel depending on the species.
PLEASE NOTE POND PLANTS NEED TO BE PLACED SEPARATELY TO FISH ORDERS AS THEY COME DIRECTLY FROM OUR SUPPLIERS
