We prune the plant slightly to shape it with a pruning shear. We remove old leaves and dirt. To encourage good growth, we add minerals to the pond water and ensure that the water's hardness level (pH value and calcium to magnesium ratio) is maintained. We make sure to put the aquatic plant in a sunny spot. The plant comes with a pond basket.

The lawn marshpennywort (Hydrocotyle sibthorpioides “Variegata”) is a robust pond plant that requires little maintenance. Prune dead leaves in the autumn and remove them from the pond. If the plant grows too large, you can remove the lawn marshpennywort from the pond in May. Split the root ball into smaller pieces and replant only a few of these.
The green variety of this gorgeous aquatic plant also regularly occurs in the wild.
