A Variety of Large and Dwarf Lily Aquarium Plants
We offer a nice selection of this plant variety including large size and dwarf lily aquarium plants. These plants have distinct ivy-like qualities and those that reach the water ‘s surface spread their lily-like leaves providing a unique look, shade, and security for your fish. These beautiful plants can be planted in the midground, background and - if the dwarf variety - foreground of your aquarium. The Tiger Lotus can grow as tall as the surface of the water permits and its leaves will float on the top. Unless you are looking to re-create the Amazon’s biotop with a lot of shaded areas, you can remove and trim the floating leaves before they cut off the light to the rest of your tank.
Lily Plant Care
If you provide strong lighting and proper fertilization, your lilies will grow broader leaves and may not actually grow all the way to the surface of the water. A fertilizer with chelated iron will help your plants develop stronger red pigments in the leaves and stalks. Make sure to read the description of each plant to learn about their care requirements and to ensure they thrive in your aquarium.
