EVoyager31 Posted June 26, 2022 Share Posted June 26, 2022 (edited) Hello all! I planted a tiger lotus bulb I bought from Aquarium Co-op and I am shocked with how large it grew in just a short amount of time. The color isn't fantastic but the number and sheer SIZE of the lily pads are becoming problematic as they are blocking a ton of light from getting to my other plants. The largest of the lilypads are about the size of my hand, which isnt particularly small. I wasn’t expecting this kind of growth at all, considering I’ve had similar plants (red tiger lotus) and they’ve never grown this large. Anyone else have this experience? I have it in a 75g tiger barb tank with C02 planted into ecocomplete substrate. The roots aren’t even in the substrate all the way and I am still seeing a massive amount of growth. I need to trim, but am worried about damaging the plant and frankly Im impressed with the growth and am hesitant to ruin it 😅 Thoughts?
