The dwarf water lily is a well recognized plant in the aquarium hobby. Due to its ease in care and beautiful red foliage, it acts as a nice centerpiece that can add great color contrast when planted among green plants. The plant grows from bulbs which shoot out red arrowhead shaped leaves from a thin long stem. The bulbs can be planted directly into your substrate or placed directly into your aquascape.
This plant is considered slow growing and can thrive in even low light/low tech aquariums.

I ordered some jungle val, a dwarf lily, and a lobelia cardinalis. Im pretty new to the hobby so I could just be overzealous. Unfortunately the lobelia was completely melted when it arrived, despite moderately fast shipping, I'm hoping the roots were in good enough condition to establish, part of the stem was a little squishy so fingers crossed. The val was in good condition and the lily bulb was...well it's my first bulb so I couldn't even say. It seemed to have good roots though all of my leaves fell off before it made it to my tank. I'll update as things root but for now a tentative average.
