Bird droppings, both terrestrial and water fowl; carried in animals fur; wind borne seed and spores, etc.
Nature has its ways.

laugh

Kelly....Kelly.......Kelly...............

Won't plants survive a drought in the bottom of the pond? Kinda go dormant and wait for water? They'd survive at least 6 months that way, wouldn't they? wink I won't point any fingers, but.............. grin

I've had waterfowl walk from the neighbors pond to mine, and I'm 99.9% sure that at least a few Duckweed plants stuck to their feathers. Some showed up in my pond, and they showed up in my pond at the point that was closest to their pond.

Esshup, you were right! With the recent rain and rise in water temperatures, aquatic plants have began to sprout up again and grow in huge masses. I also have lovely green FA but sadly it is diminishing as the plant patches get thicker and bigger.

I know the seeds of many grains can survive years underground.
