Tiger Lotus originates from East Africa and Southeast Asia.  Tiger Lotus is a tropical lily and is an ideal plant to be a focal point in your aquarium. The leaves of this plant will grow up to 8 inches long and, if not pruned, will fairly 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 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 that are 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 and allowing it draw nutrients from it.

    Fantastic addition!

    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!

    Unlike my jungle val, this plant was much smaller than I expected, but still very leafy and doing well.
