So yesterday my Nymphaea Lotus arrived from Aqua Essentials and was in really good shape when it turned up, well packaged and prompt delivery (after paying £7.99 for express of course my poor wallet). I bought it with leaves and it's about 8" tall at the moment, which isn't a bad size I think. I have put a root tab beneath the main roots to make sure the plant gets all the iron and everything it needs whilst it settles in. I wasn't sure how to bury the plant correctly (I've never had a bulb plant before but I have heard that the bulb will rot if fully buried), so the lotus is only partially buried currently. Any advice on burying my little lotus would be greatly appreciated I'm waiting on my Seachem Excel to arrive this week, so Little Lotus won't be CO2 starved for too long.
