Ring of Fire Water LilyNew waterlily for 2024! Medium Multi Tone Hardy Waterlily From Thailand!
Ring of Fire Waterlily will be available to purchase soon, Available for shipping in 2024!
Similar to Wanvisa and Siam Fantasy but with a new color pattern in the similar mutation comes a sleek new look. The flowering is probably no better and we want to warn you wanvisa and Siam Fantasy are veyr poor flowering plants, they have a few flushes of blooms in optimal conditions each summer but they need constant attention, fertilizer, and dividing as they mutliply far too fast and overcrow themselves at the root to be good at blooming for more than a couple weeks. They are certainly interesting and very winter hardy.
Plant the Ring of Fire Waterlily in the widest pot possible, a 12 to 16 inch wide and 4 to 7 inch deep pot is sufficient. We have a lovely 15 inch wide x 6 inch deep fabric container which will be perfect. 4 fertilizer tablets on the 1st and 15th of each month of your growing season until September is also good.
Plant this waterlily in loam sandy soil at only 6 to 18 inches deep for optimal blooming. It will handle water up to 2.5 feet deep though and will love an earth bottom pond rather than being potted in a pond with a liner if that is what your have. Full sun is best for waterlilies, this wont bloom with much of any shade and koi will uproot and eat waterlilies.
