    I'm starting and testing out a betta pond, (I already have them in a tank on their own as of now) I would love some flowers in my pond but I just am not sold on lillies and lilly flowers, I have bright red seasonal Gladiolus that grow hugely in my front yard (before the dang deer eat them) as experiencing with pothos and split leaf philodendron, and seeing them grow absolutely wonderful, I was wondering how gorgeous the gladiolus would do, or if anyone has different flowers in their ponds or has some in their tanks, please let me know I want my pond near-full of pond plants/flowers.

    Not too sure about gladiolus, i'm only aware of marsh gladiolus as okay for a pond, but water iris makes a much better choice in flowers, and assortment. Many of these survive the colder climates as well if that's where you live. Another flower possibility for you his water hibiscus which grows big, but very pretty.
