Water Hyacinth Eichhornia crassipes

Water Hyacinth Eichhornia crassipes

 

Water Hyacinth Eichhornia crassipes

* The water has to be warm, above 75 degrees

* They need to be crowded together. You can make a ring out of tubing to confine them

* Koi love to eat the roots so keep them separate from the fish. Once they eat the roots the plant goes down hill.

* Remove them from the pond periodically and dip them up and down in a bucket of clean water to release all the crud they collect.

* If they become yellow, remove them from the pond and soak them over night in a bucket of water that has water soluble fertilizer added to it.

* The soft plants and roots make for a great place for the fish to spawn

* Water hyacinths love moving water

They are hardy to zone 8. In lesser zones you can over winter them in a suitable container in front of a sunny window.

 

This plant is illegal in AL, AR, AZ, CA, FL, LA, SC, and TX and can not be shipped to those states!
