Goldfish and koi love this water plant as it’s another great pond plant for spawning and laying their eggs on. You’ll often see you goldfish and koi deep inside followed by the male as the female leaves her eggs all over the soft feathery branches and stems of this plant. Parrot feather offers great protection for young baby fry as they look for places to hide from other bigger fish.
Parrot Feather Plants
Please note you cannot place parrot feather outside until the last frost has passed. You can place them indoors in a heated aquarium until it’s safe.
These water plants can be damaged by frost but they do overwinter in a pond nicely well below the frozen ice. When possible sink them to the bottom of your pond which will help ensure they overwinter nicely.
