These hardy Flowering Water Hyacinth are the best flowers for any beginner water garden enthusiast here in Singapore, requiring minimal care and effort. If you have an outdoor pond or a backyard here in Singapore, get yourself a water hyacinth and it will thrive in the hot sun and add much-needed diversity into your garden. Furthermore, water hyacinths are fantastic nitrate absorbers and will keep your water quality at a quality suitable for your beautiful koi. Their roots stretch deep into the water and compete with algae for nutrients, so if you have algae problems, consider getting yourself one of this, if not you could always opt for a water lily as well.
Are these Flowering Water Hyacinths suitable for me
In Singapore’s hot and sunny weather, this plant will more than thrive. Another interesting fact about the water hyacinth is that it is a great detector for water quality, if you have fishes, the water hyacinth will be a natural (and cheap) indicator of water quality. Should the edges of the leaves start browning, you’d better start taking a good look at your pond set-up and check its water quality. Should the plant be multiplying like rabbits, then congratulations, you have a stable and healthy pond ecosystem.
So if you want a low maintenance plant, that has dual functionalities – being both aesthetic and practical, consider getting your hands on one of our water hyacinths Better yet, get yourself a water lily along with it as well and make your pond a happy place for the fishes you have.
