    Tiger Lotus Red bulb

    Posted by John Fornasar on Nov 2nd 2020

    I received two bulbs... both with a miniature leaf barely showing. Six weeks later, I have two great plants, the size about as shown in this picture. Really looking good!

    Tiger Lotus Red bulb

    Posted by John Fornasar on Oct 9th 2020

    Received two bulbs... both rolled off my light fixture as I was planting... Just found one, right up front, three leaves are out, still rolled up tight. Same red as in the picture here. I'm leaving it where it is so I can watch it grow. Wherever the other bulb landed, it'll be a cool surprise whenever it becomes visible.

    This is easily one of my favorite plants available from this site. I get most of then as bulbs with maybe one or two leaves but they all grow quickly and they have adorable little leaves full of color. They make for great ground cover plants for me as they haven’t grown very high in the water column yet. They’re wonderful for adding a little splash of color to planted tanks.

    Well they were bulbs. Might be nice. Might be a complete waste of money

    The bulb was well packaged, though it is slow in growing. It IS growing, though.

    Great plant. As it arrived as a bulb. Brief Planting instructions would have been convenient. However, customer service responded promptly with questions.

    Bulbs arrived in great shape and healthy. These bulbs were to be for a new tank that had not arrived yet so I tossed them into one of my other tanks and the larger bulb rooted itself and took off producing leaves like wildfire. The leaves are absolutely gorgeous! the tiny bulb continues to float but has also produced tiny little leaves. I am looking forward to placing these two in my new acrylic.
