Aquatic Plants

Water mint

Water mint (Mentha Aquatica) is a hardy marsh plant that can grow up to 60 centimeters tall under the right conditions. The mint-scented pond plant promotes biodiversity in and around the pond with its large and colorful flowers.

For Sumpfpflanzen , I recommend a minimum of two baskets of 8 plants per m³ (1,000 gallons of water). The amount needed depends on how quickly you want the pond to balance and your visual requirements.

Frequently asked questions about Watermint

Pond Advice

Water mint is a hardy marsh plant, which means that the aquatic plant survives the winter without any problems and blooms every year.

Plant the aquatic plant with the top of the basket -20cm below the water level for optimal growth and flowering. Arrange the basket and then plant the basket using the planting instructions provided.

Bog plant water mint (Mentha aquatica) does like wet feet, making it an excellent plant for a plant filter. It is related to the mint we keep in an herb garden and smells just as nice and fresh as peppermint. You can also make your own mint tea from water mint, or try homemade tzatziki with water mint.

Water mint buy from water plant nursery Vdvelde. We grow all our plants naturally and organically. We also always give a 100% growth and flowering guarantee and that for a price of only 14,95.

It is not necessary to prune water mint. However, if you find that the plant is expanding too much through your pond, you may choose to prune it occasionally.

Water mint pond

Water mint, scientifically known as Mentha aquatica, is a marsh plant especially valued for its water purifying properties. Many people plant it in their ponds and water features because of the following characteristics:

  • Water purification: Water mint helps purify water by improving oxygen balance. This helps control algae and harmful microorganisms.
  • Rich content: The plant contains essential minerals and trace elements that contribute to good water quality.
  • Exuberant flowering: It is a persistent plant that flowers profusely.
  • Smell and use: Water mint has a peppermint-like smell. This makes it not only pleasant in the garden, but you can also use it to make mint tea.
  • Combine for best results: Although water mint offers benefits on its own, it is recommended to plant it with other aquatic plants for best results in your pond.

Water mint is excellent at filtering water. It helps improve water quality by controlling algae and optimizing oxygen balance. This plant is a crucial link in a pond's ecosystem. It attracts different types of fauna such as birds, insects and fish, contributing to a richer biodiversity in and around the pond. Water mint is not only functional in nature, but also in the kitchen! Here are some ways it can be used:

  • Making tzatziki: Give your tzatziki a fresh twist by adding finely chopped water mint.
  • Mojito: Enrich your mojito with water mint for a unique taste experience.
  • Mint tea: A classic; mint tea is both refreshing and beneficial.

Mentha aquatica

Mentha aquatica, also known as water mint, is a perennial aquatic plant often found in marshes, along water sides and in shallow areas of streams and ponds. Water mint has oblong leaves that are green and have a characteristic minty taste when bruised. The plant also produces small, tubular flowers that range in color from pink to lilac. It is a perennial plant that spreads through rhizomes and can spread rapidly in suitable conditions. This allows water mint to form dense vegetation.

Water mint against algae

Water mint (Mentha aquatica) has a filtering action that can help prevent algae in ponds and water features. This filtering action is based on several mechanisms:

  • Shading: Water mint has dense leaves and often grows in dense vegetation. These leaves cast shadows on the surface of the water. Algae typically thrive in high sunlight, so the shade that water mint creates can reduce the amount of direct sunlight that algae need to grow.
  • Competition for Nutrients: Water mint absorbs nutrients, such as nitrogen and phosphorus, from the water to grow. These nutrients are also essential for algae growth. By removing nutrients from the water, water mint effectively competes with algae for the same resources.
  • Water purification: The roots of water mint can help purify water by absorbing contaminants and excess nutrients. This improves overall water quality and reduces the availability of nutrients to algae.
  • Organic Composition: Water mint attracts insects and pollinators with its fragrant flowers. These insects can help create a biological balance in the pond, potentially attracting algae-eating insects.
