Water Lily Aquarium Garden

Views as Money
January 4th, 2017
 I got bulbs of a water plant known as Water Lily Nymphaea sp. 

Drop the bulbs in an aquarium. 
I should probably plant them, but let's see how it goes. 

The dry bulb has to be soaked before it will sink to the bottom. 
It could take a couple minutes or so.

 I noticed sprouts start growing.

 I moved plants into small nursery aquariums with a couple of snails.

 Roots grow from the sprouts.

 The water lily looks gorgeous with white roots and pretty leaves.

 The plant grows steadily in the past month. 
Here you can see a couple of guppy fry I put in 5 weeks ago. 
They seem to be doing fine. 

It has nice roots. 
Heart shaped leaves of red and green color spread around taking the space of this small nursery aquarium.

Let's take a look at the plant from the top. 

Water lily is not the fastest growing plant in my aquariums, but one of the prettiest and easy to grow! 

Have fun and happy aquarium :)
