Red Tiger Lotus (Nymphaea zenkeri), is an aquatic, water Lilly type plant native to Africa. This plant is a great beginner red plant that does not need co2 or very high lighting to reveal its best coloration. This plant will grow big, triangular red leaves that will develop a lot of marbling over time. Most Water Lillies will send its leaves all the way to the top of your aquarium where they will keep growing and float on the surface. If you would like to achieve a bush like growth, you will need to clip it every once in a while. By doing so, you will promote faster growth from the center of the bulb.
This plant is propagated through shoots. Once the new growth starts to develop some roots, it can be cut off the main bulb and replanted. 
Do not bury the bulb completely.
