Red Tiger Lotus
You will receive one bulb, which may contain 0-2 leaves.
The Red Tiger Lotus is from west Africa and just looks great as a contrast in a planted aquarium tank. It is an amazing plant with flaming red leaves. As with most red plants, in particular Red Tiger Lotus, make sure to plant it in a nutrient substrate. The better the substrate the better this lotus will grow will grow. I wouldn't advise trying to keep a Red Tiger Lotus without dirt or some really substantial root fertilizer.

Red Tiger Lotus is a bulb plant that produces both submerged and emersed leaves.
It can tolerate a wide range of lighting conditions, from low to high, but higher lighting levels promote more intense coloration.
The plant can produce beautiful and fragrant flowers when grown emersed.
Provide moderate to high lighting to encourage vibrant coloration and compact growth.
Supplement with root tabs or nutrient-rich substrates to provide essential nutrients for healthy growth.
Maintain stable water parameters, including temperature, pH, and water hardness.
Avoid burying the bulb too deeply, as it can lead to rotting and plant decline.
Do not prune the leaves excessively, as they play a vital role in providing nutrients to the bulb.
Avoid using copper-based medications in the aquarium, as they can be toxic to the plant.
