Floating Island Planters

Product Description

Floating Islands

Floating island planters are a great way to grow both annual and perennial moisture-loving and aquatic plants in your pond.

Islands as Filters

Floating islands perform the total filtration job - mechanical, bacterial and photosynthetic. Floating islands allow plant roots to grow in the water, and foliage to trail on the surface. As a result, the plants help remove nutrients, nitrogen, and phosphorus from the water.
