  1. I'm pleased to have found this kitty litter on sale which I'll be using to replant my water lilies for spring. $7 for a 16 Lb bag. The company says it is 100% Wyoming sodium bentonite clay, no fillers, no fragrances, dyes or chemicals There are two types of bentonite clay, calcium and sodium. Koi Clay and similar products are calcium bentonite which is basically a non swelling bentonite. Sodium Bentonite is sometimes calling "swelling clay" because depending on the source it can swell twice its dry size up to over 20 times its size when introduced to water. Koi breeders often use it at the bottom of their rocky ponds to seal them. So this should be safe to use as a planting medium. I'll cover the top with pea gravel to keep Skeletor from making a facial mask with it. I'm planning to mix it with a lava-rock type planting medium this weekend and replant my water lilies. I'd be interested to hear what other people use - there is plenty of water lily/pond plant advice on the web, most of it does not consider what would be safe for fish. More on Wyoming sodium bentonite: Bentonite is an industrial mineral, rich in a clay mineral called montmorillonite. Bentonites used for hydraulic barriers in North America are produced from the naturally occurring sodium bentonites mined in the state of Wyoming. These bentonites have a unique cation chemistry. The cations that balance electrostatic charge in the clay structure are "exchangeable" cations and consist of sodium (Na+), calcium (Ca++), and Mg (++) cations. The largest deposits of commercial sodium bentonite are found in Wyoming, Montana and South Dakota. Over the years, these special bentonites have become famous and commonly referred to as "Wyoming" bentonite. The combination of the relative purity, its unusual geochemistry and structure is why "Wyoming" bentonite is used as a sealant. Purity is defined by the amount of sodium montmorillonite as compared to the other minerals present in the bentonite. A typical "Wyoming" bentonite contains ~90% montmorillonite while other bentonites produced around the world have only 70-80% montmorillonite.
