Plant your Giant Dwarf Papyrus in a 14 inch container using loam soil. Place the container in the pond with up to four inches of water above the soil. Giant Dwarf Papyrus may be planted directly in the soil of a natural bottom pond with up to four inches of water above the roots, or planted in moist soil in the bog area of your water garden. Keep soil evenly moist, especially during dry spells.
14 inch Fabric Planting Containers are an excellent choice for marginal plants in your pond. Convenient, easy to use and beneficial for plants as fabric containers allow plants' roots access to oxygen in the water. Plants grow faster and take up more nutrients from the water, helping to reduce algae.
