Soil works best when dampened, not soaked, before planting, you never want to put soil above the crown of a plant, instead, leave a slight bit of the crown above the soil's surface
Always place a 1/4 in. or so, of sand to top off your planting, if you have large fish, you may consider topping off with pea gravel - the larger the fish, the larger size of pea gravel
Freshly potted plants should be placed in shallow water to start with, this will give your plants time to get well rooted and for the soil to settle without fishy interference, 2 weeks should be sufficient time
Koi fish are notorious for uprooting pond plants, during mating season they can absolutely create a mud pit of your pond given access to freshly planted plants, beware give newly potted plants as much time, 3 to 4 weeks, to get established in your container before introducing them into a Koi pond

Awesome Aquatic Planting Media
I bought a couple bags of this soil so that we could plant our Elephant Ear plants in our pond.
We planted the Elephant Ear plants in pots so that we could put them into our pond and the Elephant Ear plants that was put into our pond grew twice as fast then the Elephant Ear plants that we had just in pots on our porch. It didn't take long before we had to transplant the Elephant Ears in the pond because they had out grown the pots. I know that they are from the swamps down in the south and they love water so that had helped some with the growing, but the one thing about plants in our pond is, we can't fertilize the Elephant ears in the pond but we did fertilize the ones that was just in pots on our porch and the ones in the DYNADIRT AQUATIC PLANTING SOIL still out grown the ones just in the pots. Finally they got so big that I could no longer keep them in the pond.
So this dirt worked fantastic! And I would recommend this to everyone!

turned my patio pond water muddy brown
I used this soil to repot several pond lillies and marginal plants. One pot was the perforated basket type, and the others were fabric. I followed the instructions on the bag, and when I put the plants into the water as directed, brown water and fine sediment turned my entire 50 gal pond brown. To the point where I couldn't see the fish, rocks or anything. After three days, the water has cleared somewhat, and the pump is pulling some of the debris out of the water, but I suspect I'm going to have to replace most of the water in the pond and clean the bottom to restore clarity. Disappointed.
