Does Home Depot sell aquatic plants?
Simply so, what are aquatic plants called?
Aquatic plants are plants that have adapted to living in aquatic environments (saltwater or freshwater). They are also referred to as hydrophytes or macrophytes. Aquatic plants require special adaptations for living submerged in water, or at the water's surface.
Secondly, can I use pond plants in my aquarium? Basically depends on the pond. If it is a small man-made pond with a filter, etc, it may be fine, and also if it has no fish at all then there won't be any fish parasites in it. Also, many plant dealers get their plants from suppliers that raise their plants in ponds.
Beside above, when should I buy pond plants?
Mid-spring through to early summer is the best time to purchase new plants. This is a good time to plant, as the water is warming up and plants should establish well.
