It looks great. 
The heat is bothering mine.
Hopefully, it will hang in there and then take off again once it cools.

You must be getting more heat than us!  It seems like we get a few very hot days and then back to thunderstorms!  Such a wierd year for us!  I also have two green worms that found mine and are eating big holes in it.  I tossed the worms in the pond today for fish food!  I hope yours get well again!

You can also use the kind that you eat as long as it still has the roots attached.  It is the same plant that you would buy for ponds.   I looked for it on Skippers site, but did not find it available.

Donny, are there any Farmers markets by you?  Any grocery store should have it, but look for the kind with roots on them.  FYI, I just planted some in my waterfalls, and it has taken about 2 weeks for them to perk up and root. They just looked wimpy for the longest time, but are doing well now and sprouting little watercress's.  They look really cool.  I got a bunch for $3, bought 3 bunches, so its a pretty cheap way to dress up your waterfalls.  I did have to move one bunch, as the falls were too heavy for it.  Good luck.

You buy it at a framers market or any produce market. It is usually over by the lettuce and fresh herbs.
You can use the one without the roots, but it is better to get the one's with the roots.  The one without the root, will take a little while for roots to grow.

Found some watercress at a Dillon's grocery store yesterday evening. They don't have the roots on them but will put them in the pond somewhere and see if the roots start growing. Right now I have them in a bucket of pond water sitting on the back porch. Bought just one bunch for $2, so not out much if they don't grow.

Put it where the fish can reach it or it will never get a chance to grow roots. Mine is growing so fast that I pull out several handfuls of it each night and feed it to the fish.   They absolutely  love it.   Smiley
