Weed my water lettuce
Every month, tear off some of the water lettuces, otherwise they may dominate your other plantations.
Plant my water lettuce
It's the easiest plantation you can imagine. If you have a pond with no limestone water, just put a plant on the top, and voila!
Shelter my water lettuce
Remember to take one or two plants and keep them in an indoor aquarium as soon as temperatures fall below 15 ° C.
Put outside my water lettuce
The warm days come back? From May, you can put back your water lettuces on the pond that where sheltered inside.
