Can a pond be too deep to grow plants. Everytime I put plants in the pond they die are struggles to survive the pond is 13ft long x 5ft wide and 4ft tall it's in direct sunlight. Or can the flow of the filter help stop them from growing it's a waterfall like filter. I tried waterlilies they struggle, foxtail died, duckweed died etc. The filter is in the pic. Oh its also covered with shady cloth, the type of cloth use in green house it only block a out 10% sunlight. It's mostly they to keep out a bird that always come an eat the fish

Answer is yes. Water lillies should be at about 24" and do not like water disturbed. Marginal plants even less. I can't really tell by your picture what you have going on.
