Red Tiger Lotus- (Dwarf Aquarium Lily)- EASY RED Aquarium Plant ETSY
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.

Hard to review a Bulb.
To start, you definitely want a good sized tank for this. Mine is 40 gallons, and I have 3 lotus bulbs in it, and they vary wildly in size and number of floating lotus pads. Grows readily, gorgeous color, and has lasted well over the last month.
I ordered “small plant” size from this site twice- first time I received bare bulbs, which was fine but slightly disappointing because they took a few months to get growing. This time, they sent the CHUNKIEST plant possible. See attached picture for more, because I was NOT expecting it to be so big, and it was pretty difficult to plant. But I’m glad it is, because what a showstopper!
