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 love the colour of the leaves, and I
can’t wait to see it grow some more.

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.
