Water Lettuce is a Tropical pond plant and should be treated as an annual plant. It prefers warmer water. 

We recommend that your water temperature is 65 degrees (and warmer) before adding Water Hyacinth and Lettuce to your pond. 

Using a round feeder or plant ring (like this one) will help keep your floating plants together and out of your pond's skimmer box.
