Oxygen Plants

Lidsteng

Lidsteng, scientifically known as Hippuris vulgaris, is a favorite choice for ponds and small bodies of water. This plant, with its distinctive straight green stems, is not only a beautiful addition to the pond landscape, but also helps keep the water clean and healthy.

For Sumpfpflanzen , I recommend a minimum of 2 baskets (8 plants) and a maximum of 4 baskets (16 plants) per m³ (1000 gallons of water). The amount needed depends on how quickly you want the pond to balance and your visual requirements.

Frequently asked questions about Lidsteng

Pond Advice

Yes, we supply Lidsteng with a pond basket (incl.clay, substrate and a nutrient tablet). This helps the plant grow well without taking up too much space.

Lidstong grows best when the stems are partly in the water and partly above the water.

This plant does well in both full sun and partial shade. Lidsteng likes a spot where the soil is always a little wet.

Lidsteng helps keep the water clean and provides a place for small animals such as insects to live.

No, Lidsteng can withstand cold well and does not need extra care in winter.

Lidsteng pond

Lidsteng is not only an ornamental addition to the pond, but also plays an important role in maintaining water quality. The plant helps filter the water and supports the life of small aquatic animals, contributing to a healthy and vibrant pond environment.

Lidsteng water depth

Lidsteng, scientifically known as Hippuris vulgaris, is an aquatic plant that thrives in a variety of water depths, making it a flexible choice for pond environments. Lidsteng can grow in water depths ranging from shallow to about 60 centimeters deep. This versatility makes it suitable for both shallow marsh zones and deeper areas of the pond. In shallower water, Lidsteng will tend to grow denser and bushier, while in deeper water it can become more expansive, sometimes with parts that rise above the water's surface. This plant adapts well to available water depth and can withstand fluctuations in water level, making it a robust choice for a variety of pond conditions.

Lidsteng aquatic plant

Caring for Lidsteng requires little effort, making it an ideal choice for both novice and experienced pond owners. It is important that the plant receives adequate light and is placed at the proper depth. Regular pruning in the fall promotes the growth and health of the plant. In addition, it is important to keep an eye on Lidsteng's expansion so that it does not overgrow other pond plants.

Lidsteng hardy

Lidsteng, or Hippuris vulgaris, is quite hardy and can withstand low temperatures well, making it suitable for climates with harsh winters. In winter, the aboveground part of the plant dies off, but the rhizomes survive under the ice and will sprout again in spring. This characteristic makes Lidsteng a durable and low-maintenance choice for ponds and water features in colder regions.
