My name Krishna Cappa, and I live in Syracuse, New York. I put a small 125-gallon pond in this year. I then put three comet goldfish in the pond and many aquatic plants.

In colder climates, it is a wonderful addition to the water garden when treated as an annual. In warmer climates (Zone 9 or warmer), it should not be grown, as it can become extremely invasive in native waterways. Luckily for Krishna, the New York winters mean it won’t be a problem.
