Red Tiger Lotus
I got a red tiger lotus. I'm super excited about it, but I'm not very clear on what to do with it now. I didn't just get a bulb. It has a few leaves on long stems and in the few days that I've had it, it's grown another leaf. When I got it, I planted it in Flora Max and sand, but I think I want to cut the long stems off. Isn't that how you can make the leaves grow bigger and more outward than up? If not, then please tell me how! I know there's a way, I just lost the info I had. If I do have to cut them, I'll mostly just have the bulb. Do I still plant that under the substrate? The plant floats if it's not planted, so I can't just drop the bulb onto the substrate which is the most common instruction I've come across.
