Red Tiger lotus

Scientific Name:  Nymphaea Zenkeri

Common Names: Red Tiger Lotus, Nymphaea Tiger Lotus

The Red Tiger Lotus is a beloved tropical lily among aquarium enthusiasts for its striking appearance. These solitary plants feature vibrant reddish leaves and can even produce fragrant flowers under optimal conditions. Surprisingly easy to care for, they thrive in well-lit spaces without requiring specific care.

Although fertilizer can promote growth, it may lead to the development of long-stalked floating leaves that can block light from other plants. However, these leaves can also bear beautiful white flowers, enhancing the tank's aesthetics. The Red Tiger Lotus adapts well to various water conditions, tolerating both acidic and alkaline environments, as well as temperatures ranging from 15°C to 30°C. Regular removal of long-stalked leaves ensures that lower plants receive adequate light, maintaining a balanced aquarium ecosystem.

You should not bury the bulb of this plant deeper than 1/4 of the bulb or it can decay/rot
