  • hyacinthus

    Is there a problem with keeping this in my pond? I.know its technically prohibited but i have it "quarantined" in my pond. Granted i have to harvest it ever week but i think they grow crazy fast and look amazing when they bloom

    I would assume thats a completely different plant from hyacinth that can be grown inside?

              The Water Hyacinthus is a prohibited, regulated, and restricted plant in Arizona per the Arizona Department of Agriculture. (See blm.gov link below). They can grow like crazy and can choke off waterways and are a problem in some parts of Arizona. So they should be kept away from any natural water bodies to prevent further problems. They do have very beautiful flowers, but do not handle the cold very well and can freeze to death easily if it drops below freezing. they are very good at cleaning up water of nutrients and even some heavy metals and other contaminants.

                Dwarf Water Lettuce (tropica.com 128) is a floater that will bloom tiny white (with pink) flowers.
