The Taiwan Lily (Nymphoides hydrophylla 'Taiwan') is a fantastic aquarium plant for those who want to add a green background accent to their tank. They are wildly popular among beginners, as they do not require an expensive set-up to thrive, but also among experienced aquarium owners because their green fan-like leaves function as beautiful ornaments.
For whom is the Taiwan Lily suited?
The Taiwan Lily is a staple in most aquaria, as they can function as a fantastic focal point thanks to their unique appearance. On top of that, fish and shrimps seem to love hiding between the dense leaves. Because they don't require any special care, they are especially well-suited for beginners.
What are they like?
These water lilies are fast-growing, quickly filling up the tank with their beautiful, green leaves. Once the leaves mature, more plantlets will grow from them, allowing them to fill up your tank quickly. If this is not desired, we recommend removing the older leaves occasionally.
The ideal conditions for the Taiwan Lily
As previously described, the Taiwan Lily is a low-maintenance plant, perfectly suited for both beginners and experts. They do not require intense lighting or fertilizer supplementation, though it will significantly promote their growth. As for the water temperature, 15 °C – 32 °C seems to be best for these green beauties. They also seem to thrive in both hard and soft water, and both slightly acidic or alkaline water is fine.
Arrived in good condition and seems to be taking well to my tank. It's a nice color contrast from the darker plants in my tank.
