Green Tiger Lotus (Nymphaea Zenkeri)


Green tiger Lotus is a terrific plant that grows from a bulb and develops an enormous root system. When young, it will form many fully submersed leaves. In time, it will send out longer shoots which, upon finding the surface, let out large, beautiful leaves that hang at the water’s surface. Once the first leaf has found the water level, the plant will continue to put up many floating leaves.If you prefer them not to float on the surface just snip them off at the substrate. This will also help the plant develop more leaves quicker.
This plant makes a terrific focal point in any aquarium.
