A beautiful and very varied species from West Africa with leaves of green to red-brown and varying numbers of purple spots. Can grow from 20-80 cm tall. Before forming floating leaves Nymphaea lotus (zenkeri) forms many underwater leaves. If you don't want floating leaves, prune the roots and leaves.

The beautiful, aromatic flowers can be fully appreciated in an open aquarium. A nutritious bottom encourages growth. Recommended as a solitary plant for large aquariums.
