Tiger Lotus (Nymphaea Lotus)
Tiger Lotus, also known by its scientific name as Nymphaea Lotus, originates from East Africa and Southeast Asia. The leaves of this plant will grow up to 8 inches long and, if not pruned, will quickly reach the surface of the water where they will float, providing shade in the aquarium and making fish feel more secure. The leaves can come in a variety of shades and colors from green to dark red, with patches of purple or red-brown. Tiger Lotus can be kept compact and submerged by regularly cutting leaves racing up to the top of the aquarium and by providing good lighting. The roots of the plant will spread quickly anchoring the plant securely in the substrate, allowing them to draw nutrients from it.

I can't wait for this plant to start growing. And if it doesn't, it's on me because all the plants I received were healthy and thriving.
Received order on time as expected. Plant was in good condition. Plant was planted in aquarium and has been planted for about week. Plant is doing well even has new growth already. This plant was also planted in aquarium with existing co2 system. Very pleased so far
Planted this little gou in my tank with drift wood. The water colour is quite tan and so I thought it would look great there. Leaves are just starting to go a bit red now and is looking healthy. Will need to get more I think
