Plant info sheet:


 

Nymphaea lotus, Linnaeus, 1753

Origin: Tropical Afrika, Madagascar, Southern Europe, and from North to South America.

Height: 100 cm, maybe more. The plant grows as high as the waterlevel and build large floating leaves there.

Light: Moderate - high

KH: 4-12

pH: 5.5-7.5

T: 22-28

Additional: To keep the plant looking nice in the tank, it is necessary to cut all the leaves as soon as they start to grow to high. If the bulbs are placed too deep in the gravel, the plant will start to rot and die.
