Is daar enige plante wat nie hoef geplant te word in potte nie? Met ander woorde plante wat net in die dam kan dryf, my dam ongeveer twee meter diep en wil nie onnodig mandjies ens laat hang nie aangesien dit aan die voorkoms van die dam kan afbreek doen.

I put water Irises in my filter ponds without potting them, no soil or gravel at all. A lot of them floats on top, making it easy to clean the bottoms. Even those that drift on the water in a horizintal position soon gets new leaves growing vertically.

It is the yellow flag water iris and have a nice yellow flower (Iris pseudacorus)

It also comes in mauve, blue or white but they are more difficlut to get hold of.

You can fetch some from me for free. (Yellow) George is around the corner Very Happy

Ek het ook van daai water irise wat ek in my dam gehad het. Volgens my plant encyclopedia is die blomme en saad van die plant giftig en sal braaking en diaree veroorsaak...weet nie of dit nou giftig vir kois is nie.

Dis blou/pers en geel iris word gebruik vir mediese doeleindes en om kleursel van temaak. Die wortel kan gedroog word en fyn gemaak word vir tandepaste...

Is jy seker hulle verwys na die Iris pseudacorus (Yellow flag water Iris)

Ek het nog al die jare water Iris in my dam gehad, sommer baie, en dit word baie algemeen gevind in koi damme.

Ek weet die blueflag (wat nie 'n water Iris is nie), is giftig.

Wat se Henk of Gerald ?, hulle is die water plant experts.

Ja dis spesifiek die tiepes.

Iris pseudacorus is die geel een (Yellow Flag of Variagata)
Quote :
The rhizome of the yellow flag tastes extremely bitter and contains toxic substances.


Quote :
This was once used as a purgative to induce vomitting.


Quote :
The flowers provde a yellow dyestuff for colouring tectiles including wool.


Iris germanica is the blue/purple one. (Orris)

Quote :
The rhizomes of the orris contains powerfull toxic substances with healing properties which act as expectorant and are therefor usefull for treating coughs

Iris versicolor (Blue flag, wilid iris) se wortels is giftig.
Quote :
Pharmaceutical companies obtain iridine from rhizome which is a strong laxative and also a diuretic. The fresh roots in particular contain sharp and bitter tasting toxic substances so the the herb should only be used under expert supervision

Al die plante word gebruik vir mediese doel eindes...so die plant se dele is nie giftig in klein hoevell hede nie maar veroorsaak braking en diaree.
