Patio Pond with Bog Filter | Planting the Pond Plants - Part 11
Still waiting the 12 part!!
Where is part 12?
Part 12 is coming soon I’ve heard.
To echo other folks: I really learned from the series, but we never enjoyed
the finished product. Where is part 12? Did you lose the cooperation of the
Cant wait for part 12 aswell!! :D
yeah when is part 12 arriving?
This filter is similar to a sand and gravel filter, is there any
maintenance like the air blow out required like the sand and gravel? Or
will the plants use all the waste and make more plants, just requiring just
thinning out the plants?
Hi Eric, I just wanted to say that your videos ROCK. Thanks for all the
instructions. Can’t wait to get my pond finished!!!
Hi Eric. Love your videos! Its really cool how you answer everyone’s
questions. I just bought a house and plan on installing a pond next spring
or summer. I can’t wait to apply what I learned from watching your videos.
Thanks for the awesome videos, cant wait for more.
Thank you Eric. What temperature they have to grow well? Is 15-22*C ok for
them? How far down the temperature before I have to remove them inside?
Glad you are enjoying it!
Soper79 nailed it on the head. You would need to drain the feature each
year or have a green house over the patio pond each winter.
No Terje the water lilies with large pads are all tropical. You can grow
them each summer and remove them each year before the cold temps hit you.
They tropical lily bulb can be stored in moss in your house over the winter!
Range 30 degrees in the winter, 110 in the summer.
Technically yes. The obstacles you’d face that Eric isn’t here is that
you’d have to decide what you’re going to do in the winter. Drain the pawn?
Or try to heat it. I can tell you with no protection from the ground around
it being elevated, it’ll be hard not to have that thing freeze solid like a
rock. What would you do with fish if you put some in? Plus Eric used a lot
of tropicals. You might be better off using hardy water plants.
Really like this series..
Hello Eric, I live in Phoenix, AZ. I have a 700 gallon Koi and Red Eared
Slider pond. Your videos have inspired me to add an active bog filter to
replace my existing filtration (which I am not satisfied with). I have a
1/8hp external pump, planning to use the same laguna pre-fab pond for the
bog, with 2″ PVC throughout, do you think the plants will provide adequate
filtration with my turtles? Thank you!
Hi Eric… That type of water lilys, What level of temperatures does they
take? In my pond I get like 22-23*C at moust in summer, and 5*C by the
winter. Should it be possible to make those lillys to grow with my
temperatures? If not….Do you know other lillys with big leafes like this,
that survive in the temperatures I have?
would this work on a patio in Michigan?
What are your temp erature ranges where you did the install?
