Hi @Bahrum,

Welcome to TPT!

The plant that is floating in the picture appears to be Pistia stratiotes (water lettuce) and not a species of Nymphaea. It requires strong light and nutrients to grow well.

Thank you. this is very helpful information.

Bump:
Think you misheard them. It’s water lettuce not lotus.

Will need a stronger overhead light and light dosing of full spectrum fertilizer (thrive) to stay healthy.
Thank you. you are right. i will do this.
