About Nymphaea Solfatara
Water lilies in aquarium, water garden, and pond settings provide a colorful look to the water surface. In an indoor setting, you’ll also enjoy the lovely fragrance. To encourage root development in young plants, use a fertilizer that contains phosphorus. Keep the lilies away from moving or splashing water. Remove yellow and browning leaves regularly throughout the growing season.
The yellowish orange water lily produces baby plants, which can be cut and replanted. Make sure a baby plant’s tissue is firm and healthy, and remove any decayed pieces. Propagating water lilies using the rhizome creates duplicates, while planting new lilies as seeds can have varying results.
