Water lilly have I killed it?
« on: May 19, 2018, 19:48 »
About 10 days I planted the native water lilly Nymphea Lutar in my pond about 60-80 cm deep.
I cannot find it now, is it dead?  Did I plant it too deep (it was quite small) or can it develop from there?

Id have a good root round for it & raise it up, if it has any leaves you should just lower it a step at a time so tge leaves are just breaking the surface, then lower gradually until the desired depth is achieved

Was it in a basket? Have you got fish?

Hmm, the basket must be in there, is the water clear?
