Nymphaea Pubescens
Also known as: White Hairy Water Lily

This aquatic plant is common in shallow lakes and ponds throughout temperate and tropical Asia, to northeastern Australia, Papua New Guinea and India.

The white flowers are quite large, about 15 cm in diameter when fully open. They tend to close during the daytime and open wide at night.

Its leaf blades are round above the water and heart-shaped below. Some of the leaves that emerge rise slightly above the water held by their stem in lotus fashion, but most of them just float on the surface. The leaves of this plant have fuzzy or hairy undersides and the stems are covered by the same hairs as well, hence the name "pubescens" or "hairy" of the species. This is not a characteristic that is apparent when looking at the plant from above the water though. Highly commercialized as an aquarium plant. The underwater leaves of this species have a handsome appearance that is appreciated by aquarists who often remove the floating leaves to keep it as a fully subaquatic plant.
It prefers non-acidic waters and it does not tolerate temperatures below 15 °C.

Please note the difference:
The lotus is often confused with the water lilies (Nymphaea, sometimes called the "lotus"). In fact, several older systems call the lotus Nymphaea nelumbo or Nymphaea stellata. This is, however, evolutionarily incorrect, as the lotus and water-lilies are practically unrelated. Far from being in the same family, Nymphaea and Nelumbo are members of different orders (Nymphaeales and Proteales respectively).

Lotus form waxy green bowl like foliage (to 2’ across) that generally rise above the water, as with the flowers are born on stalks (peduncles) above the water. Lotus (Nelumbo) produce large marble sized seeds and have been found to remain viable for several centuries! Lilies (Nymphaea) on the other hand, its foliage tend to 'float' on the water surface and the leaves generally are flat. The seeds of Nymphaea are very small.

This offer is for 15 small seeds.

*We also offer this species in bigger packs of 500 and 2,000 seeds under our bulk category.
