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.

wanted something a little bit different from what I've been buying for my 75 gallon aquarium
I've bought these from other places as either plants or bulbs and they've always failed to thrive. The other bulbs never grew and the plant died back to nothing before finally re-sprouting probably six months later. I was prepared to wait a while for results but these bulbs sprouted immediately and already look gorgeous. I will definitely be buying more in the future!
