Red Tiger Lotus- (Dwarf Aquarium Lily)- 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.

Ordered medium plants they were smaller than expected but 2 extra plants were sent. More than made up for the size especially considering they are a fast grower
I ordered the medium plant, and I was surprised at how large their "medium" is. It came with more than a dozen leaves already sprouting, and a little sister plant forming roots from one of the leaf stems close to the bulb. Beautiful plant.
Even better in person . I was worried if they would be as red in person. If you have been wondering or skeptical , they are absolutely stunning ..
I got a nice surprise of an extra Tiger lotus plant when my order arrived. However everything was thrown into one bag, and the box the bag was in was pretty banged up. I didn't like playing plant Jenga to get the plants out of the bag, especially with a $100+ order I would hope they were packed a little nicer. Overall though they're healthy and have already taken off in my aquarium. There was 3 big leaves on each plant and now I have 6 poking out of the water plus some submerged growth.
My lotus came in with at least 10 leaves. The bulb is very firm and has lots of roots coming out at the base of the plant. I'm really looking forward to this. I know it will get really big, really quickly, which I know my angelfish will love. I'm very happy with my purchase
