    No worries, when the roots are longer you can cut the plantlet away from the parent leaf and you'll have another water lily plant.

    You're right on, roots are growing under the parent plant. I thought it looks great with the parent plant, so I am leaving it.

    Re: Strange water Lilly plant

    The holes on the parent leaf are inevitable. The parent leaf will die and all part of the leaf will melt leaving the plantlet a chance to root. That's part and parcel of the waterlilly propagation method. Waterlilly can also propagate by seeds and rhizome divisions. What substrate are you using?

    Re: Strange water Lilly plant

    And I forgot to add one more propagation method - by runners

    Re: Strange water Lilly plant

    Hi Guppendler, thanks for the insight, I am using Ada Amazonia soil, power sand special, bacter 100, clear super and tourmaline bc as recommended by fishybusiness. I started this tank in Feb 2017, I find the substrate performs beyond my expectation.

    Re: Strange water Lilly plant

    Waterlillies need very rich substrate and strong light to grow well and flower. In aquarium, it is grown for its nice submersed leaves. Trim off any leaves that start to reach the water surface to keep the plant looking 'bushy' under water.

    Thanks Guppendler for your advise, managed to keep it low and bushy.

    Very nice, thanks for the water Lilly updates.I can see also that you’d allowed your guppy to mate with black bar endler, your latest photos show the crossed results of the offsprings
