Dwarf Lily

The dwarf lily is an amazing beginner plant. The lily comes with a bulb that you do not want to bury completely (max half way burred). The bulb will usually have multiple plants growing from it. These plants can be separate from the bulb or left attached to it. The lily will send out new leaves higher and higher until they reach the surface. Trim the leaves at the length you want them to stay and it will encourage the plant to only grow that high. The dwarf lily will absorb a lot of excess nutrients in the water which makes it an ideal addition to any low light nano tank. 

You will receive one (1) plant with one bulb or three (3) bulbs that are unsprouted. Usually, the bulb with have multiple plants. Portion sizes may vary. 

Scientific Name: Nymphphaea rubra

Light Requirements: Low to Medium

Good sized bulbs

Very pleased with my dwarf Lilly’s . Two had good roots and leaf shoots and one was in a dormant stage. After only a week the one has leaves almost at the surface . Very pleased.

Spectacular is about the best way to describe this plant!

Well packaged, healthy, very colorful

It fit in my 10 gallon aquarium better than I expected even though this tank is heavily planted already. This is a plant I've looked for, for a while and I am in NO WAY disappointed!

Thanks to Flip Aquatics and I'll be back to buy more plants!!

Dwarf Lily growing new leaves in 1 week

I ordered some Pea Puffers and a Dwarf Lily from Flip Aquatics on a Friday. They were shipped on Monday overnight and arrived mid-day on Tuesday.
The heat packs struggled to keep up with the low teens temps, and everything was about 65 degrees. All fish seem to be fine and the Dwarf Lily has already put out new leaves.

This purchase came on time and very well packaged. The plant was about 4 inches tall not including the bulb. The bulb was was solid, no soft areas, there were healthy leaves and a good root system. Then I got hold of it put it in the aquarium and it promptly lost its leaves stem and roots. I left it and after a couple of weeks it is sprouting. Quite pleased with this purchase.

Dwarf Lily Love❣️

My sweet little dwarf lily arrived with two leaves. So precious and sweet. It wasn’t long before both leaves melted away. I was so disappointed. Lo and behold a new tiny leaf sprouted and started reaching up toward the light. As of today she has 4 total new leaves as pretty as can be🥰 She is destined to be the centerpiece of my aquascape. So happy with my purchase.
