Plants for artificial ponds in the suburban area
An artificial pond at the dacha, in addition to its decorative purpose, carries with it also the function of moisturizing, creating and promoting favourable saturated climate for plants.
However, in order for the pond to provide the necessary moisture your garden plants, you should first pay attention to the eco-balance in the pond as such.
If the cleaning function water take filters and pump, water plants for ponds perform the task of recovery and revitalization of the water, thereby contributing to the normal metabolism of the pond.
The process of exchange of substances in the reservoir as follows. Absorbing carbon dioxide, water plants produce oxygen, which, in turn, nourishes plant life in the pond.
The aquatic fauna in the process of life emit mineral salts and carbon dioxide, which are equally absorbed by plants.
To ensure that the cycle of metabolism is not interrupted, when the settling pond should adhere to the necessary proportions, otherwise, non-compliance with required ratios can lead to negative results.
For example, if the number of plants in the pond is insufficient, the water will start to bloom by purchasing sliminess and green tint.
Besides, excessive amount of solar energy that will fall in the rod due to lack of a large number of plants, will provoke the uncontrollable growth of algae. Conversely, if plants too much, water will become more like a flooded meadow.
In order for an artificial pond has always been in good condition, remove the extent of contamination of the algae and aging plants, and those becoming too much.
Conventionally, aquatic plants are divided into three classes: ·abyssal (deep sea); littoral (coastal); water-demanding plants.
The abyssal roots of plants for the pond are most often found in deep water. Depending on the type of crop, the leaves can be both surface and underwater.
Such plants usually grow stronger than others, and therefore to avoid the overgrowth, they should be periodically thinned.
In terms of their breeding in an artificial reservoir, this type is often first planted in pots, baskets or containers, and then is lowered to the bottom of the pond.
The root system of intertidal species is poorly developed, in contrast to the above-water part. When the cultivation of such crops should be taken into account that despite the weak development, the roots are strong enough, and in other cases may damage the waterproofing substrate.
Moisture-loving plants ideal for planting near water, like the moisture
The only caveat to consider when planting these plants is the height of the leafy part and the root system size, and the volume and location of the area You want to put under cultivation of this species.
Possessing information about the types and properties of plants you want to plant in the pond, You can achieve an ideal and balanced filling of the reservoir and its further functioning.
