Bunched Elodea Crispa Oxygenating Plants

(4.9) Based on 4 Reviews


Also known as Lagarosiphon major, this is the most commonly sold oxygenating plant as it is hardy, easy to grow and the spread can be controlled.

Bunches consist of several strands of plant held together by a lead strip. Elodea may establish itself if just 'thrown' into the pond, but we would strongly recommend that you plant it in soil or fine gravel.

Plants can be positioned in 12 to 30 inches of water. They can be placed straight on the bottom, but if the water is murky, they must be raised near to the surface to receive sunlight, and stepped down as they grow or the water clears. Usually available all year round.  



Please note Live plants are only dispatched Monday to Thursday to prevent deteroriation in delivery depos over the weekend.

Item was well packed which ensured that the plants arrived still damp which is essential for an oxygenating plants to survive posting. The plants are now growing well in the pond.

I was hesitant to buy plants online because I was worried they might be stuck in a box in a depot for days but the man I spoke to assured me that they'd make sure my plants were sent out on a service that meant they arrived within a day. Perfect!

Mrs B Asked:

my oxygenating plant seems to have overtaken my pond - do I have to thin it out - if so by how much?

We Replied:

Hello Mrs B, too much oxygenating plants can cause problems as they release CO2 during hours of darkness. We advise that you thin it out if possible, do not have more than half of your pond covering with this if possible.
