  • 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.

  • Scientific Name: Nymphaea zenkeri
  • Native To: Africa
  • Skill Level: Medium
  • Placement: Mid to background
  • Co2 Requirement: none
  • Preferred Fertilizer: Liquid - Easy Green & Easy Iron, Root Tabs
  • Directions: To plant your tiger lotus, place the bulb on top of the substrate or about halfway buried until you see some growth. It will send roots down into the substrate to hold itself in place. Burying the entire bulb can cause the plant to suffer.

  • Note: This potted tiger lotus may come with a few leaves growing from the bulb. However, the leaves are delicate and it is common for them to be damaged in transit. More leaves will grow about a week to 10 days after being planted in an aquarium.
