Tiger lotus making a bulb on surface?

Recommended Posts

I’ve had a red tiger lotus growing nicely for about a year in eco-complete substrate with root tabs. Overtime recently I’ve noticed that it is not making very many new leaves, and there seems to be a ball on top of the substrate. It looks a little bit like it is forming a new bulb. Anyone seen this before? How do I get it to make more leaves again?


kind of hard to see in this photo, but you can see this thing that looks may be like a Macademia nut on top of the gravel in between a couple Java fern leaves

Huh if they can do that i haven't heard of it before but I am hardly an expert. I know they flower and produce seeds but I don't recall reading or hearing about other types of reproduction. Does the seed looking thing appear to be attached to the plant?
