Why Lilly Plants Don't Survive in Koi PondsThis is about an issue we all have at the Koi pond. It seems that the fish are very active and they are stirring up the soil from the planter boxes, which causes the dust and sand from the planter boxes to leach into the water. Water lilies are often thought of as an auspicious plant to have in a koi pond, but these plants can be problematic. For this reason, fish may be drawn in, and the accumulation of dust and sand along with the clogging of filters will lead to a muddy pond, which will be inevitable.Even after continuous vacuuming, the floor will have too much dust and sand which is not a pleasant thing to see.
Koi love to admire the unique qualities of the pond plants, and it's simple to introduce them to a place that has already been teeming with koi. But once plants are established in a pond that is full of koi, introducing koi can become an annoying undertaking.

Koi are unable to resist the treat offered by garden plants, and this can result in considerable annoyance.
Another option is to use plants koi won't eat. Following are the name of pond plants which can grow in harmony with koi fishes.
  • floating-plant water lettuce
  • lotus plant,
  • yellow-flowered water poppy
  • umbrella plant.
  • Elephant ears
 Koi tend to ignore these plants in favour of more nutritive choices.For more info kindly contact us +91-9400726668
