The Dwarf Lily (Nymphaea stellata) is a very hardy species of aquarium plant made popular by its long lily-pad-like leaves that grow to the surface of the water.
This plant is great for beginners due to its fast growth and hardiness. This plant will do best in tropical water, in the temperature range from 72-82 degrees Fahrenheit and with a pH range between 5.5-7.5.
The Dwarf Lily bulb is a heavy root-feeder and can out-compete other plants for nutrients due to how fast it grows. For that reason, we recommend the use of fertilizers or root tabs when growing Dwarf Lilies. These plants will do best in moderate to high lighting, and do require some kind of substrate.
Size of bulbs vary. Do NOT plant Dwarf Lily bulbs into the substrate as this will kill them. Place your bulb on top of the substrate and allow it to take root naturally.
