Red Tiger Lotus- EASY RED Aquarium Plant for sale
Red Tiger Lotus are an amazing plant that I really just got into not all that long ago. I love the big red leaves and the unique shape of the plant. As with most red plants, with Red Tiger Lotus, you are going to want to make sure that they have substantial nutrients in their substrate. The better the substrate the better the Red Tiger Lotus will grow. I wouldn't advise trying to keep a Red Tiger Lotus without Dirt or some really substantial root fertilizer.
They say to cut it back so it grows better. I have never personally done this, but it isn't a bad idea for how to care for a red tiger lotus. The Red Tiger Lotus is from west Africa and just looks great as a contrast in you planted aquarium tank. You get so much of an interesting plant with such a great red that I really love this plant.
Red Tiger Lotus is totally a top ten favorite plant of mine.
NOTE: These plants are soo phat that I hand wrap them in wet paper so that they are delivered perfectly to you.

I always shoot folks towards this site, mainly because I havnt been disappointed yet and I've ordered more than a couple times. Listing said "bulbs not guaranteed to sprout". So when I opened the box the next day after it got to me, I was surprised to see all !!4!! of the bulbs with leaves or sprouted. Stoked to say the least, but even better, with planting into my dirted tanks all have taken off and one is already shooting off and hit the top of my 65gal, at 19+ inches tall from bulb to top leaf. I got these Nov 13 it is Nov 25. Day one to today pictures included of the largest one.
Never received plant
Opted for the bulb, because I love watching the entire process. The big leaf on top is brand new. Beautiful plant!
I wanted a large plant but all they had were small plants. I orderd that and got a bulb with a 1/8" sprout. Not what I'd call a plant.
