WaterLilies

We grow and sell a variety of imported and  indigious waterlilies and others aquatic plants

Our Waterlilies

All water lilies need to be planted in very nutrient dense heavy clay soil or aquatic soil preferably in a minimum of 10L elliptical shaped mesh pots as other pots may stunt the growth.  Fill the basket approximately ¾ full with clay or aquatic soil.  Position the rhizome in the center and leave about ¼ of the crown sticking out.  Do not bury the rhizome completely as it will rot.  Top with a thin layer of gravel so that the soil does not wash away or get disturbed by fish

Lily Care  

Water lilies prefer FULL SUN in order to thrive and increase the number of blooms.  Although Waterlilies prefer still water they tolerate gently flowing rivers with a little turbulence but excessive splashing and quick flowing water is not their preferred environment. Although your waterlilies can be fertilized, keeping fish in the same pond as your waterlilies would suffice as the fish fertilize the waterlilies whilst fertilizing your waterlilies with artificial fertilizer can kill fish.   Should you purchase waterlilies from Mega Carp our friendly staff will advise you on your Lily care.
