Red Tiger Lotus are an amazing plant that I really just got into not all that long ago. I love the big red leafs 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 don't do this will all plants, Ludwigia and Red Tiger Lotus mainly...
Care Scale of 1-10 ( 1 it can grow in your toilet- 10 being nearly impossible)
Red Tiger Lotus is a 3 (it will do better with good substrate)
