How to Plant a Waterlily
Before adding a waterlily to your pond, you'll want to pot it in a container designed specifically for aquatic plants. Since waterlilies are voracious eaters, you also want to make sure you include fertilizer when potting them up. Once potted, you can place the waterlily into your pond. If you don't have a pond, you can also plant waterlilies in watertight containers to set on your patio or deck! Just make sure the waterlilies get at least 6 hours of full sun per day.

Wendy B on Jun 20, 2013My koi haven't eaten them yet...but they like the lettuce...I bought the plants from the 'pond' place and they don't look happy. They have turned yellow and look near deaths door. All the other plants I have look fantastic. A little sad but where some adore the plants, I adore the fish! I'll just keep trying with lotus and lily until I get it right OR they eat them, haha!
Sherrie Slaboda on Apr 09, 2015@Aquascape Inc. I have a question about potting the waterlily in concrete containers. I have huge Koi that eat everthing. I'm sure the concrete container will prevent the destruction but I want to be sure it won't hurt the Koi. I love your posts.
