A beautiful and very varied species from West Africa with leaves of green to red-brown and varying numbers of purple spots. Can grow from 20-80 cm tall. Before forming floating leaves Nymphaea lotus (zenkeri) forms many underwater leaves. If you don't want floating leaves, prune the roots and leaves. The beautiful, aromatic flowers can be fully appreciated in open aquariums. A nutritious bottom encourages growth. Often available in a red and a green variety. Recommended as a solitary plant for large aquariums.

I got a rock
By Esmée from Guelph, Canada on June 27, 2021
I almost thought it got missed in my order but then I spotted the dark 'rock' with very small shoots on one side. From my experience with land bulbs I knew it was full of potential and it delivered! In a short time I already have several large leaves and a shoot headed to the surface! So very pleased with all of my orders and many more to come.

bulb mixup
By Art from Toronto, Canada on June 27, 2021
Had trouble deciding how to rate, as the bulb received is not a tiger lotus, but a dwarf aquarium lily (long triangular leaves instead of the rounded ones of the tiger lotus, and more brown than red. However, very healthy and adapting well, and sending off side shoots so a nice specimen, just not what I thought I was getting. I understand this is fairly common, from what I've googled, that often these lilies arrive instead of the red lotus. Not a big issue, and I don't blame AngelFins - supplier most likely mislabeled the product

This lotus had several leaves already out and there are several new leaves sprouting. I can't believe how big and nice looking this Tiger Lotus was.
I'm tempted to put it outside in a bin outside to see if it will flower and seed so I can have some for other tanks.
