*Fabric Planting Containers are an excellent choice for almost every aquatic plant for your pond. Convenient, easy to use and come in different sizes. The tops of the planters can be folded down to the desired height. When plant roots have access to oxygen, they grow more rapidly, taking up additional nutrients in the water, helping to eliminate algae.
