Water Gardens & Ponds

  • I have a water garden with fish, lilies, etc. Will Turboganic My Garden® help my fish or water plants?

Water gardens seldom require fertilization because the fish are usually providing most of the nutrients the plants require (except for water, sunlight, and carbon dioxide), if their food is nutritionally well-balanced.  While some carbon dioxide from the fish is absorbed by the plants, most of it is taken in from the atmosphere.  The fish also release ammonia which is rapidly converted to nitrites and then to nitrates by bacteria before it can be absorbed by the plants.

It is not recommended to add any fertilizer to water gardens even Turboganic My Garden® unless there are no fish in the water garden. Even then, dilute the product to 1/100 rather than the recommended concentrations and use sparingly to avoid “green algae filled water.”
