Additional Information: Give this plant a root ball or root tab or plant it in a nutrient rich substrate like daltons aquatic mix for example. If you find the leaves decide to melt away one by one do not fret. New growth will come from the crown of the plant. Leaves melting away when the lotus plants are moved into a new aquarium is normal behaviour. Similar behaviour to cryptocoryne plants.
N.B. This plant may or may not contain harmless non-plant eating aquatic snails (if you do not wish to keep aquatic snails in your aquarium please refer to our plant dip section under the FAQ and inspect your plants thoroughly for clear gel like snail eggs).
