Nymphaea Red Tiger Lotus is the perfect centerpiece for a larger aquascape. Nymphaea Red Tiger Lotus are a lily pads. Oddly enough, instead of the round leaves that lily pads usually produce, tiger lotuses have arrowhead-shaped leaves. The red leaves can develop striped variegation under heavy lighting. The red tiger lotus will have a royal purple on the bottom side of the leaf. However, if sufficient iron isn’t present, the red tiger lotus may produce green leaves.
Nymphaea Red Tiger Lotus produce highly aromatic blossoms that are white in color. Depending on the species, some produce blue or red flowers. Many combinations of these colors are available because of selective breeding and hybridization. This plant gets very large however, they are easy to contain to a reasonable size by removing leaves as they grow.
