All the bulbs came with leaves already sprouted. I love these plants, they always look great as they mature. In the past they have even flowered.
These Tiger Lotuses were a rollercoaster. Firstly I didn't read well enough and expected something similar to the picture, not a bulb with three leaves. Once I re-read the listing though I understood my mistake and started the waiting game. First the initial leaves melted away and I was very disappointed, but after about 2 weeks one of my 3 bulbs sprouted and started doing fairly well. Now 2 or three months in, I have one giant plant, one about 1/2" tall and one just sprouting and dropping roots. I suspect I will have 3 huge lotuses in 2 more months time. I have yet to prune it as I want a lot of verticality, but I suspect I will have to soon. Awesome purchase.
Didn't look like the Picture. Plant was very small.
I am thrilled with these. I purchased 2. Both were sprouting upon arrival. They were placed into a 7.5 gal betta tank and both are about an inch -two from the top in a 14.5" tall tank after 5 weeks. Beautiful plants. My entire order arrived healthy and well packaged. Highly recommend.
Highly recommended great service and fast delivery
Love this plant - I have several in my tank. The oldest one just sent up a bud which bloomed into a very pretty white flow with a pale yellow center.
So many plants in one piece. Very healthy plant and very good packaging. Thank you so much.
Came in just a tiny bulb.. a week in and the leaves are as big as my hand!! Love it!! Highly recommend
I hope the Three Plant Balls turn into the Plants in the Picture, They look Beautiful .
