Why are phosphate compounds not wanted in a garden pond? Phosphor (phosphate), a vital plant nutrient, is lacking in natural waters (0.001 – 0.01 mg/l). Plants have adapted to this deficiency through long evolution and therefore need very little phosphor for growth. Phosphate is therefore a limiting (inhibiting) factor for plants and also algae growth in water. Accumulations of phosphate compounds, in garden ponds often up to 10 or 500 times the natural level, lead to an explosive increase in unwanted algae, particularly floating and thread algae, but also blue-green algae, to which bacteria belong. Regularly checking the phosphate content of the water using the JBL Phosphate Test-Set PO4 sensitive is recommended. In the garden ponds, levels to a maximum of 0.05 mg/l can be tolerated.
