Nymphaea lotus red is a bulb plant that produces both submersed and floating leaves. The two most important factors in successfully growing a Nymphaea lotus in an aquarium are plenty of light and a healthy substrate. Like other species in the Nymphaea family, this special is delicate, thus it thrives in conditions of still water to gentle currents. The preferred temperate range for the Red Tiger Lotus is 70-80 Fahrenheit (21-27 Celsius), with a PH of 6.5-7.5. Once the plant takes root, it will produce off-shoots extending to the water's surface. Keeping the off-shoots trimmed will encourage bottom growth of the plant. A healthy Red Tiger Lotus can reach up to 10-12 inches (20-30 cm) in height.
