Here are some ideas for creating these small-sized water gardens:
Some of the plants you come across at nurseries are meant for larger outdoor ponds. These can be used indoors as well, just keep in mind that you will eventually need to replace them when they outgrow the space. When adding plants, start by adding substrate to the bottom and then slowly fill the container until it is half full. Add and anchor the semi-aquatic plant first (then more water), submersibles second (more water), and floaters last (fill completely).
A few of these will help oxygenate the water and reduce algae problems.
Anchor the roots of semi-aquatic plants with thoroughly washed pebbles, colored marbles, sand etc.
Water-You can use tap water, but let it stand at least 24 hours before adding plants to allow chemicals to evaporate.
Feeding-Wait 2 to 3 weeks before adding fertilizing pellets made especially for pond plants. You'll only need a tiny fraction of the amount required for an outdoor pond, so use sparingly.
Discarding Plants-Eventually, your plants may outgrow their space. Compost them or discard them in the garbage, not into local ponds and waterways where they may become invasive and harm native species.
