Letís water the the Oxygen-weed frequently and regularly; every 0-1 weeks we should wet the soil deeply, using 1-2 buckets of water , but avoiding wetting it too much. These plants need a great quantity of dampness; they should be placed on shores, or sea beds, or small ponds. If grown in a large container, usually the water should be substituted every 15-20 days.
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.
Aquatic plants need a heavy, scarcely drained, constantly humid soil.
