Tiger Lotus (Nymphaea Lotus) | Potted
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.
Care Guide For Tiger Lotus
Tiger Lotus will appreciate good light and fertilization. Provided with good conditions, this tropical lily will grow fast and start quickly producing several leaves sometimes in the manner of just a few days. 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.
- Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate
- Temperature Range: 71-86°F
- Tank Placement: Midground-Background
Tiger Lotus is a tropical lily and is an ideal plant to be a focal point in your aquarium. It should be planted in the midground or background. The plant propagates from daughter plants on runners.
Tiger Lotus is also available as a bare-root plant and bulbs.

Tiger Lotus Potted
The picture doesn't do the plant justice. Came in excellent shape. Experienced no die back at all. The plant is definitely a focal point in the tank. Brilliantly colored and growing rapidly
This has been one of my favorite plant purchases! The bulb I purchased was very easy to "plant" (if you can call it that), and within the first week already has sent roots into the substrate and grown two new leaves, with two more poking out! Very healthy and attractive!
Lovely healthy plant
The plant arrived in very good condition and looking very healthy. The color is deep and vivid.
Great Shape, quick ship
Really loved this plant
Carefully packed and made it through shipping with minimal damage. Instructions for preparing plants upon receipt was informative.
Very beautiful, colorful plant. Rapid grower. Treat yourself
Great specimen received. Small, healthy, and very colorful. The plant has already produced new leaves in a matter of days. Thank you
So Bright and Pretty
Much more color than I expected, lovely plant! It will look great against all the green in my tank.
Best plant ever!
I have purchased so many I have lost count. The grow and create pads on the top of the tank. Fish love them!
My Tiger Lotus arrived healthy and beautiful. Its been planted in my tank for a week now. Its made new leaves and is even more vibrant than when it arrived.
Beautiful colors, a tad smaller than I thought. Nice roots.
