Help ID this plant!

Post  fishNAbowl on 2014-03-21, 23:35

A lotus type plant that I picked up last summer @ my LFS has finally grown to near it's former glory after a drastic melt. For the life of me I can not remember its common or scientific name.

Anyone wanna take a shot?

I don't think so MorganEA. It wasn't sold as green tiger lotus and looks a bit different from photos on the Internet. These leaves are lighter green in color, red splotches, and speckled with a 3rd color that I would say is either a super dark red , almost burnt burgundy in color. If you zoOm in on the picture you should be able to see the 3rd color.
Green tiger lotus leaves seem to be a darker green with a single shade of red.

This is it. I forgot to mention that this plant propagates something like a fern. Where small plant-lets form in the middle of the leaf near the stem. I forgot about that. It's been a long time since this plant has been this large.

No. It was Red Tiger lotus I passed on to you Wes.

This stuff grows like a weed in my 140! I am still pulling out root babies months after the last plant has been removed...

Yes, it's a very interesting plant. I picked up a big mother plant last summer. At the time of purchase it had a few on the leaves. As the mother plant melted these eventually drifted around the aquarium. I collected them and tried planting them near the location of the melted mother plant. It has taken a good 5 maybe 6 months to reach this size again. Growth really started taking off under the LED's I installed.

Tolmiea menziesii propagates like that as well (it's not an aquatic plant)
