Darned fish are eating the hyacinth
« on: June 11, 2011, 04:11:42 AM »
Opal is misbehaving! She is eating off all the roots of the water hyacinth I just bought. I need those plants to help clear up the pond! {nono} She has some acomplices as well, and they have pulled out 2 of the lillies I repotted. I need some bigger stones I guess.

Kathy,

If you don't mind how it looks, you can get a hoola hoop and a mesh laundry bag and secure around edge of hoola hoop, tie the bottom of the bag off some and float in the pond with the hyacinths inside it.  That keeps the fish from getting to the roots and keeps the plants out of things.  I have a couple in mine, or the fish would have them destroyed.

Good luck!

Yeah, pretty cheap to make and works, I have my parrots feather in them.  Don't have any hyacinth right now, but I really want some.  I also tie a string to it and then secure it to the pond edge, that way it stays where I want it.

I had to move mine in with the marginals because my goldfish were nibbling the roots off. They are starting to look good again.
Happy ponding,

Good Ideas!! I will try the mesh! I repotted the lilys yesterday. I used osmocote with cow manure, then used river pebbles and pea gravel over those. Heavy to move, but so far the plants have stayed put even through Opal's foraging. I used a large rock over 2 of the tubers, I KNOW she can't get those out.

I didn't realize Wal Mart has the mesh fabric.  I'll have to check it out.  O0  In a pinch, I used the cheap blanck landscape fabric that people use to cover the ground to prevent weed from coming up.  I just use fishing line and sew it onto the hula hoop or black tubing.  My watercrest is growing wild in the water ring.  I also use this to put baby fish in so they don't get eaten by the big fish.   {:-P;;

I've used a semi-rigid plastic netting to contain floating plants in the past. Usually with a "pool noodle" float ring. One advantage to containing hyacynths this way is that they bloom much more readily when bunched together, much more so than when floating about individually.

Of course, being in Florida, the water hyacinth is a strict "No-No." Invasive species and all that. The water lettuce is (or used to be, anyway," kind of a grey area plant. You could keep it, but not sell it, except for export to states than they are legal in.

If you need to rejuvinate either, remove them from the pond and put them in a tub of water with some liquid fertilizer for a week or so. They should perk right up.

My friend and I bought 2 Hyancinth each. 3 weeks later I have 10 and he has 2. I put mine in my staging pond. I put its offshoot babys in my filter. Then I take all of their babies and throw them in the main pond. Steady supply this way and if the roots get eaten I throw them in the lily pond till I have to start giving them to all my friends.
