Anybody have any experience with whiskey barrel ponds?
I have one set up but not really having luck with plants.
I bought them at lowes though so that could be the problem.

Should there be a substrate besides pea gravel?
the plants are in their own little pouch so i dont think they need to be buried.

If the plants are in pots they should be fine, if your PH is good. What plants are you trying? I have not tried a water garden like that, but I have lots of books so fill free to ask.

Need a lot more info.

What species of plants?
What exposure?
Are you working with the bare barrel? or with a barrel-liner?
