Care for tropical water lily Euryale Ferox
We ship your tropical water lily Euryale Ferox in a small pot with soil and packaged in a moisture-containing material. Upon receipt of your plant you will first put it in a bowl of water. Attention: Don’t use too cold water, min. 18 degrees, the right temperature for the plant/rhizome to strengthen.
In the first few weeks your tropical water lily Euryale Ferox will strengthen. The leaves might die back. Tropical water lilies grow fast and new leaves will arise soon.
After these first few weeks the leaves will rise to the surface. Tropical water lilies prefer a sunny place. Preferably, you put it in a tub or bowl on the terrace. If desired, you can use a heating element to heat up the water (max. 24 degrees). The warmer the water, the faster the water lily will grow and bloom.
As soon as your tropical water lily Euryale Ferox starts growing more and more old leaves will die back. Their colour will change from yellow into brown. Discoloured leaves will fall apart and can be removed by means of scissors / water lily tongs. Nevertear the leaves off, as the rhizome will get damaged. Flowers that have finished flowering will disappear under water. You may cut them as well(never tear them off).
As soon as you notice roots (roots grow out of the basket) you can start fertilizing your water lily. Only use water lily as it doesn’t harm other living things in the water. Slightly press the fertilizer with your fingers (depth: 4-5 cm). Cover it with a bit of soil, to prevent it from floating. The result? Your water lily will bloom and grow better. As soon as the leaves start growing you will fertilize for the first time. Mid-August you will fertilize for the last time. The amount of fertilizer depends on the size of your basket.
