While the State of Florida was shut down due to the Covid 19 Pandemic...
The Poinciana Beautiful Crew at APV wanted to do something for the community during these very uncertain times. The BOD approved the management to bring some vibrant colors and life into the common areas that they manage.
We could not have imagined the transformation that took place and the amount of joy that it brought to the community who came to stroll thru the amazing gardens entranceways.

Poinciana is Going Green
In an effort to bring Poinciana an environmentally safe alternative to chemicals and efficiency in man hour management. Management has introduced a species of fish in our ponds to control underwater plant life in an effort to keep our ponds clean and running properly.
The Triploid Grass Carp is a hungry species that have a sole menu of underwater plant life. They can eat 3X their weight per day of the foliage that clogs up our ponds. The village 9 has used the Grass Carp to manage their ponds for the past 10 years, with great success. We have initially place 15 sterile Grass Carp in our pond in front of the Administration Building.
The Triploid Grass Carp at full size can grow to 6.6 feet in length and
weigh up to 90 pounds. These fish are unlawful to possess without a
permit to do so. If fishing in our ponds should you happen to catch
one please release it back into the pond unharmed.
This is the law and a finable offense if witnessed by a Fish and Game
Officer. All of our ponds that are stocked with these fish will be
marked with a sign.
