Nymphaea stellata, or the Dwarf Aquarium Lily, is a colorful bulb plant that is well known from its triangular leaves and varying colorations (green, orange, red etc) it develops as it grows. Unlike the tiger lotus, the dwarf aquarium lily typically only grows to about 5 inches, making it a perfect foreground or mid-ground showpiece! We suggest keeping it in nutrient-rich substrate or to substitute nutrients via Root Tabs as Dwarf Aquarium Lilies are heavy root feeders.
