- Colorful, Patterned Leaves
- Easy to Care For
- Grows Lily Pads
Tiger Lotus is just a beautiful plant and not difficult to grow. Given just medium light and plenty of nutrients, this plant will thrive. What makes Tiger lotus plants so popular is its reddish-green to deep red leaves with darker spots that are often purplish in color.
As it grows, tiger lotus plants will display its large leaves below the surface of the water while simultaneously sending lily pads up to reach the surface. It does well as a midground to background plant, but because it is so impactful, it can make a great stand alone plant as well.
Note: The leaves are fragile and may be damaged in transit, but there is no need for concern because the bulb will sprout new leaves within a couple of weeks.
The tiger lotus I got had a few leaves that melted off but with in a couple days it was starting to grow new leaves that are doing great! It even has a mini bulb growing off it.
Came with lots of leaves that survived shipping. They did come off after a week but this was explained at purchase expected to happen. New growth was observed the same day that the old leaves came off.
We have been thrilled this this addition to our planted tank. Less than a month ago we ordered all our plants for our first planted tank. Each came healthy and well-packed. We also ordered the root tabs. The bulb came with one leaf but has blossomed faster then we anticipated. Have already and will continue to order my plants here.
So far so good. The plant arrived in great shape. Now just wait see how it does in my aquarium.
