Quick update...
Still ugly as all heck...
And its just got uglier.
In the past two days ALL the leaves from the water lily melted and died.
All of them. So now its just a tub with some dying floaters..
Sad looking.. The fish are all doing stunningly...
I look into the pond and see that theres around 50 leaves about to shoot for the surface..
Not sure what this lily is doing...
I still have yet to get root tabs for this thing.. Pretty sure thats why it hasnt bloomed yet.
For now its just sat in aquatic pond soil.. That heavy clay stuff... With a big old layer of MGOPS in the middle..
Seems to be doing the trick but I'm fairly certain that my lack of proper nutrients is preventing flowering.
