One more thing, I read that this was a large plant but I didn't believe it until it made 4 foot spread and shaded my entire 65 gallon!! Unbelievable!!
I have had lotus plants for 4-5yrs and I have never had one flower! You are lucky,
of course I tend to trim all the surface leaves they put up so I guess its my fault
