It's leaves are green and often red with green speckles when new and unfurling. A beautiful contrast.
This is a very fast growing but only medium size plant. Divide regularly and fertilize as it multiplies readily in the pot.
4 fertilizer tablets on the 1st and 15th of each month from April-September. A 14 inch or wider pot is best for flowering and not having to divide too regularly.
Plant in a large (14" wide ) or larger container using heavy loam soil and place 5 - 20 inches beneath the surface of the water in full sun.
Fertilize during the growing/blooming season, April through September.
We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs + Humates for optimum growth and best bloom!
