Another industry for aquatic plants in Florida is the restoration market. Aquatic plants can be used by ecologists, engineers and other professionals to restore damaged wetlands or create water storage filtration areas for stormwater runoff. Restoration species include both fresh and saltwater plants such as cattail, bulrush, native lily, pickerelweed, seagrasses and mangroves.

Located near Greenville in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, we have been producing quality aquatic plants for water gardens across the United States! Springdale Water Gardens began producing water lilies in 1988, with our first available crop in 1993. We welcome visitors to our nursery and display gardens throughout the year. Monthly demonstrations are held March through October covering many water garden topics. Our Online Store features a full line of water lilies, bog plants, ornamental fish and all the goodies to build your own water garden paradise!Unfortunately, for as long as I have been in the aquarium hobby/business (which dates back to the late middle of the last century), local fish stores and big box pet stores have always sold various plants that are not true aquatics — plants that will very soon die in completely submersed growing conditions. To name a few, there are purple crinkles, Brazilian sword plants and Sanderiana, as well as the ever-popular lucky bamboo. In my humble opinion, selling plants that are not true aquatic plants is taking advantage of the public. Where do you draw the line? What really is the difference between selling a Brazilian sword plant, that you know will die in the water in a few months and selling begonias to unknowing hobbyists? This was the first and best store that we visited. Aqua Forest had widest variety of flora and fauna, and a plethora of interesting tanks, starting with their planted discus tank that sits at the front entrance. The staff were very nice, and they were glad to have me snap pictures, as long as I didn't use a flash.In shallow ponds and container aquatic gardens, plants will need to be brought in for the winter. Just after the first frost, lift the containers from the pond and leave the plants in the pot. Trim off all dead leaves and stems. Place the container in plastic bags to retain moisture and store in a cool basement or other area where the temperatures don't go above 50 degrees or below freezing. Check periodically to make sure that there is plenty of moisture in the bag. Maintain these conditions until spring.
