Plant directly at edge of pond or along shallow water garden planting shelves.
You can also fill individual planting containers loosely with aquatic planting media, placing the appropriate fertilizer tablets into the bottom half of the planting media & covering them over, then filling planting media to the top.
Create a hole in the planting media & place the bulb in the center of the pot & then cover the bulb with about 1" of the planting media for best results.
Avoid using bagged potting mix and other lightweight soils because they will float and continually cloud pond water.
Regular fertilization of your Zephyr / Rain Lily will keep it growing well all season long. CrystalClear® Thrive™ Fertilizer Tablets can be pushed into the soil at planting time and from April through August, see label for fertilizer application rates.
For best results, trim or prune as stems begin to turn yellow or brown, remove them completely, discarding them to keep as much excess organic material out of water-body as possible.
Tropical bog plants will need to be removed from the pond and replaced next season, or removed and relocated to a warm indoor space for winter.
