A beautiful bulb that develops with lovely brown/red leaves. These will reach to the surface of your aquarium making them particularly useful for tall aquariums. Similar to Nymphae lotus, but the leaves are more pointed as opposed to rounded.

The leaves can become quite large and offer excellent protection from the light for fish such as discus.

This plant is unlikely to cause much difficulty in the aquarium as it grows is a wide range of water conditions. It can survive in warm water (up to 30 degrees) and is ideal for a discus tank.

The bulb came in top condition. I popped it into the tank and could literally see it starting to grow in the first day. Excellent product!!

Very happy with my purchase. The bulb plant came with leaf growth and was healthy. The bulb is growing already in my aquarium. Highly recommended and will buy again from seller again. Thank you.

Arrived with two tiiiiiiny leaves. Every time I look in the tank it's gotten bigger. Seems to be all right in a small tank of 20 litres, I guess time will tell.

Ask a question about this product
Nymphaea stellata (nouchali?) v. Nymphoides aquatica in a small 5 gallon tank that's taller than it is wide? The tank is cylindrical, about 30cm diameter by 60cm high. Which is more likely to thrive poking its leaves out the top and still leave enough space and light for fish underneath (bettas)? Or neither in that space? Thanks!

Opt for stellata

I have one of these nymphaea bulb and recently it shed all its leave and stems they've never grown back but it's not dead. Is it normal for this to happen? Thanks :)


Quite normal so don't worry :)

How do you plant it?


simply place it on the aquarium soil and give it a slight wiggle - that's it

does the bulb have to be fully under sand, as some bulbs dont always have to be fully submersed


we recommend that bulbs are placed on the substrate or buried to a maximum depth of 1/3.

Can this grow with sand substrate?
