Nymphaea Rubra

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.

Dwarf lily bulb

After my bulb sprouted and starting to take root, it has really started thriving. Right now it's in a 75 gallon and has 17 lily pads at the top of the water. It's nice because of you trim off the pads, then the submerged part of the plant will grow bigger so you can always change up the style of the plant.
