It did just start blooming. That picture of of the first flower which opened... I wanna say two days ago.
It's incredibly easy to grow. I put it in direct sun, water once a day, and fertilise when I remember.
Sometimes I neglect to even water for a few weeks.

The cymbidium orchids along the pond have finally dropped all their flowers.

But now a newer orchid has taken their place.

Maxillaria tenuifolia.
The flowers aren't very large or impressive, and they hide in the foliage.
But people manage to find this one as if drawn by a magnet.

It makes the whole pond smell of coconut oil.

One of my favorite orchids.

For the first time ever my lily produced three flowers.
I hour this becomes a trend with it.
Bugs always get stuck in the center of the flowers.

The lily had really gone off... never more than two flowers at a time though.
... all the parrots feather I removed from the other mini pond I slug over the side.
The cymbidium orchid finally stopped all their blooms.
And I got more fish. There's 4 shubunkin, 3 sarasa comets, a calico ryukin, an orange comet, and an oranda.

Go for it!
It's really great to look at and so peaceful.

Go for the bricks like I did. Way cheaper than stone.
I should give an update on this pond.

I know some people in your area with goldfish. Give them a try. The key is a shaded pond lol.
Thank you! It's still very much a work in progress.

Re: Eldachleich's 250 Gallon Goldfish Pond

For the record the water lily is called Dauben, a small blue tropical lily particularly suited for shady ponds.

It's also beautifully fragrant.

Another flower opened today, I was told the flowers would go more blue with shade, and that they have.
The first picture is of the first flower, the second one is of the new flower.

The pictures don't even capture the colour difference properly.
