A type of water lily which remains smaller than its other family members. Perfectly suited to larger aquaria where it can be used as a striking contrast to green and yellow plants. Appreciates high light and nutrients to achieve its deep red and speckled leaves.
Trim stalks before they reach the surface inorder to stop underwater leaf growth from shedding and ceasing.
- If received in a pot, please remove all rock wool from the roots. Where possible we try and ship without pots or rockwool. Due to them being non-biodegradable we prefer to propagate in an environmentally conscious way.
- CO2 will generally yield better growth rates.
- Stable water conditions are a must, changes should occur over a period of time in order to reduce chances of melting etc.
