My grandad brought me a new oxygenating plant today, one that has no clear roots on it and came wrapped in a metal band to tie them together.

Thing is I'm not sure what it is and I'm pretty sure I shouldn't of took that band off and left it on the surface of the pond! I think I saw Monty Don with these things and I swear they are supposed to sink!

Please help!

Yes they generally do have roots and the little metal band acts as a sinker until they make some, but if it's the type I'm thinking of the roots will grow in a couple of weeks anyway.

Ack! What a foolish mistake I made then by taking the metal band off! I feel like such an idiot lol.

I will have to get a new metal band or something so they can sink. I hope they don't die from floating on the surface..

No, they are good swimmers.

So... will I need the metal band or will they sink/root by themselves?


Thanks for the help peeps Saw one fish under the cluster yesterday so I'll leave it like that!
