Same here. I also have a new pond and am missing a few plants...I am working on it...have Lilly pads, Iris, water mint, water lettuce and Fairy Moss...still need some underwater plants and several more floating plants as my pond receives a lot of sun. Have been having more fun watching my fish, and they are learning that I bring the food !!!
Really enjoyed the article as there is a lot I still need to learn about my pond and it's upkeep.
