Waterlilies

Have only a few flowers this year after I used the wrong chemical in my pond. The sturdy waterlily survived and is now growing vigorously.

Hi lakercapt, what sort of chemicals do you use in your pond?

What killed everything off was an algacide I used for swimming pools as the chemical I used to use was banned by the provincial government. Big mistake.
What I use now is called Oxy Pond cleaner followed by another dose of Microbe Life.
Both made in Florida.
