RED TIGER LOTUS AS SPROUTED TUBERS

Red Tiger Lotus is widespread across tropical Africa, where it inhabits various bodies of water, including temporary pools and lakes, and flowing water. It has a tuber for storing nutrients and robust floating leaves. Its most attractive feature is the submerged juvenile leaves that do not reach the water surface. Of the two colour forms, this red variant is most popular among aquarists; the green version is hard to find commercially. Tiger Lotus is generally undemanding; older, larger leaves should always be removed at the base of the tuber.
