Terrestrial plants that are able to survive in or very close to sea or brak water are called Halophytes, this means that they are able to either process salt water or extract water from salt water.

Most plants cannot survive on sea/ saline or brak water, as the process of osmosis that enables water to be drawn into the roots cannot work due to the high concentrations of salt; in fact the process is reversed and water is drawn out of the roots and into the saline soil.

Here are some saltwater plants.

Red Mangrove Propagule

Shaving Brush Plant

Halimeda Plant

Kelp on Rock, Smooth Leaf

Kelp on Rock, Grape

Maiden's Hair Plant

Mermaid's Fan Plant

Chaetomorpha Algae - Aquacultured

Ulva Lettuce Algae - Aquacultured

If looking for a tree in addition to Mangrove, in laboratory tests Russian Olive has been found capable of surviving extremely sodic conditions. Check to see if this tree is invasive in your area.

yes chlorinated water will kill plants

No, the chlorine will kill your plants.

Yes, I had hibiscus surrounding my inground salt-water pool. They grew beautifully.

In a typical saltwater swimming pool nothing living other then micro organisms should be able to survive. In a saltwater pool with water, filtration and components designed for marine life, they could.

They may survive in an empty pool, but are not able to live under water.

As long as you keep your pool regularly chlorinated then the mosquito larvae will not have a suitable water pH to survive in. If you slack off on the chlorination then the water will start to turn a greenish color and that is when the larvae will thrive.

Oh yes, you can survive on pool water for years. Either chlorinated or salt (salt water pools have very little salty taste).

Play pool adventure mode or play survial pool ... I think

Repel, mosquito larvae can not survive in salt water.

well the answer is yes because they can survive in water and it's the enviorment

As long as your plants are not in the pool or too close for getting wet with splashing,any plant will be fine but always take consideration when it comes to leaves and flowers falling in the pool,it can stain the pool's flooring so just be considerate to your pool guy and your pocket when choosing your plant.

No HFMD can not survive in Chlorinated water. Actually the chlorinated water will help Sue M MD

Yes it could, The correct answer should be probably not , but some plants and grass are extremely sensitive to salt and chlorine. The concentration of salt on a salt water pool is about the same as that in tears and the chlorine disipates very rapidly there is very litle chance that this will harm your plants or soil.

No, the chlorine will infect the plant

Yes they can also live in the Ocean, But they cannot stay in a properly balanced pool for long They seem to survive in salt water pools for their normal "season" refardless of water balance or condition. They do not appear to be harmful and can only be made to disappear with a chemical product that is hazadous to humans.

what happens when a plant does not have enough water?

Depends. If you mean a kiddie pool that you filled from the hose, sure. If you mean a regular swimming pool, probably not. Chlorine is added to that water to prevent growth of unhealthy organisms, and your plants will not like the chlorine.

Because of the evaporation of the pool water. The gas travels to the branches etc, and grows better

it can survive as long as it has a pool of water, food, and is kept in a plastic box. use a few air holes.

Fill a bucket with water, then mark the water level on the bucket with a waterproof marker. Set the bucket next to the pool. Next, mark the water level of the pool. After a couple of days, check the marks on the bucket and the pool. They should measure the same (having lost the same amount of water due to evaporation). If the pool level has dropped more than the level of water in the bucket, you have a leak somewhere. (By the way, make sure your dog hasn't drank out of the bucket, or pool!)

No. Pool chemicals will kill the fish. Also water balance PH, and ALK levels will not support fish life.

Firstly, if you choose to convert your pool to the salt-water (saline) system, you will not need to drain the pool as often as if you were manually chlorinating the pool. Secondly, the mild salinity of the water is probably less than the salinity of the ground-water in your area. I do not know of any common plants, grass etc which would be harmed by the 3000-4500ppm salinity of your pool water.

well i don't have a swimming pool so i wouldn't know. But water spiders can bite, although i doubt that they would be able survive in a pool with all of those chemicals.

can i put and above ground pool next to a retaing wall <><><><> No. Retaining wall will not support weight of water in the pool.

No, it can't survive in a pool, it needs room to swim. If a shark stops swimming it dies. But, it can survive in a big aquarium like in sea world.
