Zones 4 - 11. This aquatic perennial's tuberous roots colonize the soil at the bottom of earth-bottom ponds, or the soil in containers fully submerged in lined ponds. The stems of the leaves can reach the surface of water that's nearly two feet deep-and then continue upward, above the water, a few inches or even a foot farther. The roots don't tolerate frost but the tubers and roots are hardy anywhere the water above the soil is deep enough that the pond's surface-ice doesn't freeze all the way down to the soil, and yet is not so deep that their leaves can't reach at least a bit above the water's surface to get the full sun they need to grow and flower: From the frost-free tropics of Zone 11, then, all the way down to the seriously-Wintered Zone 4 of Northern Vermont and Canada. Few plants, aquatic or terrestrial, have such a world-wide versatility.
Easily sprouted by scoring the short end of the seed and leaving in a bowl of water. Water lily has its place in myth and legend, beginning with the ancient Greeks who dedicated the plant to the nymph, a type of water demigoddess.

Few plants, aquatic or terrestrial, have such a world-wide versatility. Growing your lotus in a plastic tub that's submerged in water: Plant the tuber shallowly, on its side, in a dishpan-sized plastic tub of heavy soil. Don't use potting soil, which is so fluffy it would just float away when you submerge the plastic tub. Leave the tuber's growth tip exposed.After two or three of the small starter leaves have sprouted, you can lower the tub (carefully) to its "mature" depth.
Yes, the starter leaves will be "drowned"-fully submerged-but the subsequent leaves will know to grow all the way up to the surface. Only after the young plant has a half dozen leaves lolling around on the surface, just like those of water lilies, does it then decide to grow leaves that leap up out of the water entirely before unfurling.

1 EXTRA LARGE Duckweed Portion (Lemna minor) - 250+ Floating Pods - Live Aquarium Plant by Aquatic Arts
Manufacturer: Aquatic Arts
Brand: Aquatic Arts
Live plants have many agricultural uses, such as removing waste and excess nutrients from hydroponic systems, fighting algae and bacterial growth in farm ponds, and keeping educational aquariums clean. Duckweed, also known as water lens, is a fast-growing floating plant. The leaves (or fronds) are very small and vibrant light green in color. They grow in dense colonies and provide hiding places for small invertebrates and fish. Duckweed is easy to grow and is fine with low-light setups, although more light means faster and denser growth. It grows by absorbing waste including ammonia and nitrates from the water, which means less pollutants causing smelly or cloudy water and happier fish/invertebrates! This portion comes with 250 or more pods, and is grown by me right here in the USA, not illegally imported/etc.
You get 1 Cryptocoryne Wendtii Broze with at least 4 stalks. This plant is great for the foreground or midground of your aquarium. It is is low maintenance, grows easily and does not require fertilizers or CO2.
