These hardy, low-maintenance bulb plants are unique and beautiful additions to any aquarium or pond! 

Waterlily bulbs are easy to grow with quality care. The bulbs base must not be completely buried in the substrate or it will rot. In fact, burying just 1/4 of the bulb in the substrate should be sufficient. These bulbs love warmer water and sometimes can quickly deteriorate if the temperature is too low. Finally, it will periodically go through dormant periods where it will shed its leaves for a few weeks, but then grow new leaves. Waterlilies will propagates through shoots, and once new growth has roots of its own, it can be cut and replanted. 

Like most plants, these bulb plants have moderate nutrient requirements and will benefit from supplementation such as Seachem Flourish, Flourish Excel, Nitrogen and other plant supplements. 

No aquarium plant distributor/nursery/wholesaler/retailer can or will guarantee their plants to be 100% snail free. We can not guarantee our plants will be snail free.

Shipping Schedule for this service

UPS 1 Day: Monday through Thursday

Current Handling Time:

1-9 business days

Here at Aquatic Arts, we consider the welfare of the live animals we are shipping to be of the foremost importance. This process is much more involved than simply creating a shipping label and affixing it to a box. Depending on the order, it takes from 4 to 7 people to complete this process properly. We check the weather conditions here where they fly out of the Indianapolis UPS facility and the destination for each shipment. We start early each morning and go through a multi-step process to have the day's shipments prepared in time for the UPS pickup. The volume of orders in our system also affects the processing time. Therefore our stated handling time is 1-9 business days. 

Shipping Rate

Pricing is by size of package needed to fill entire order and distance it must travel. It will be calculated at checkout.
