Default Parrots Feather

Our pond is in Zone 5-6. Water temp is 50 - 55 depending on day and night
temps. At this point the Parrots Feather has lots of stems from last year
but is showing no sign of growth. Is it still too cold for it or has it
died??

Thanks,
Heather

Hi Heather,
You can't kill Parrot's Feather, well, maybe
a direct nuclear blast but...
Yes, I think it is too cold yet for Parrot's Feather to grow at 50 to 55. I'm
sure it will come back once spring wears on. I usually give all plants until
the end of May before they are considered awol.

In SoCal, the water could reach 75 today. The PF is barely growing. They seems
to be recovering slowly from last winter chill.

Mine is 79. I just put my Oscar back in the pond.

I'm so tempted to get a black arowana for the pond. Have you tried
raising one in the pond?

No. I haven't really been into aquarium fish for a long time, though arowana
have always intrigued me. (I didn't think you could still get them???) I put
the Oscar in the pond to eat mosquito fish. He'd rather eat pellets! Anyway,
the water is too cold for him in the winter 50-55, so I bought an aquarium
to winter him. At my house, as my S.O. would say, once your in your in!

================
I'm in zone 6 and mine is about 6" to 8" above the water with fresh new
growth. They get about 1/2 day of sun. Perhaps yours needs more fertilizer?
I use Potash at 1 heaping Tbs. per 1,000 gallons of water in spring and
again in mid-summer.
