A lovely oxygenating plant that grows as an emergent as well. Helps aid in algae elimination as it competes for the same nutrients in the water. Either plant Mermaid in the substrate, weigh it with small anchors or plant it in sand or clay planting medium and place on the shelf of your pond. This is one of the best plants for tadpole food, they will eat this very quickly and is a great way for them to transform faster in the pond. Also great for cover for small fish or for spawning.
