Choosing the plant which will be used in the pond will be decided by what fish live in the pond and the choices of the owner of the pond. Things to look out for in healthy plants are the state of their bodies and leaves. Holes and spots in these might indicate a disease which might spread with other plants in your pond. Growing pond plants that are riddled with disease can damage your other healthy plants and corrupt all plants in the pond.
