Aquatic Pond Plant Ideas For Rochester, NY
Have you noticed that leaves on your waterlilies are getting smaller in Rochester, Monroe County, New York (NY), or that they’re flowering less? If you answered yes, your waterlilies have become root bound and it’s time to divide them.
During the first year of planting waterlilies, the spread of the lily leaves only covers a small portion of your backyard pond.
The second year, you’ll notice there are more leaves, they are larger, and there are many flowers.
The third or fourth year, you start noticing that the leaves are a little smaller and maybe there are a few less flowers. Another sign that it’s time to divide the waterlily, is when you try to fertilize the plants but can’t because the pot it’s too crowded.

To pot a newly-divided or bare root waterlily, first fill 2/3 of the pot up with Aquascape Aquatic Planting Media or nutrient rich topsoil.
Make a hole for the water lily tuber close to the edge of the pot. Place the water lily tuber with the cut end next to the edge of the pot so the growth tip of the tuber has room to grow across the pot.
Place a fertilizer tablet in front of the growth tip of each tuber. As a rule of thumb, place up to three tubers in an 8 to 10 inch pot and up to five tubers in a 16-inch pot. Water lilies should be divided after two full growing seasons or sooner if warranted.
