Description

Tiger Lotus (Nymphaea Lotus) | Bulb

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 potted and bare-root.

    Tiger Lotus Bulbs

    Posted by Steve Minnick on 16 Jul 2022

    These bulbs appeared to be very healthy when they arrived. They have been planted in the aquarium for over a week, but don’t show any growth yet. If they don’t sprout after another week I will contact Modern Aquarium and ask for a refund or replacement. I am really hoping to see some growth soon.

    Fast shipping and well packed. Received 2 bulbs and both already have their leaves sprouting but due to some critters in my tank, both sprouts were damaged and melted. In spite of that though, both bulbs have put out new sprouts. That’s the beauty of this plant. They are super hardy and one of the most beautiful aquatic plant in the hobby. Highly recommended to anyone that wants a beautiful and very hardy center piece in their tanks.

    TIGER LOTUS

    Started to bloom in my tank within 2 days of arrival. A little misleading to show 3 bulbs when you get 2, but that's another matter.

    Bulbs were sprouting on arrival, and started putting out new shoots within days after planting. Recommend!

    Surprised

    Posted by Clint Keese on 18 Jun 2021

    I ordered the plant package and was a little upset when one of the selections they picked was the tiger lotus bulbs. No roots or anything. I figured what the heck, and planted them in my grow out tank anyways. (The package I received was AMAZING!!!) I forgot about them for about three weeks. Then one day I went to harvest some plants and what did I see?? Both bulbs had already sprouted and there were already two small leaves. I was shocked. They ended up going in my planted community tank and now they are show stopping beautiful. Dark red leaves, and just amazing. So very glad I got these bulbs. They are breathtaking!

    I have purchased 6 of these bulbs so far, all were good excluding one dud floated. This is a really good plant if you have betta fish they love the pads. Good quality bulbs.
