Nymphea species

Nymphea species (family Nymphaeaceae). These plants are sometimes known as pixie lilies. There are many species and varieties with heart shaped aquatic leaves. The leaves are very varied from bright green to dark red. These plants form floating leaves as they get more established. These can be cut off to force aquatic leaves to grow. Nymphea species propagate by forming thousands of seed as well as by vegetative bulbs which are normally found in the aquarium trade.
