Do water lilies need soil?
These plants do need a good and healthy amount of soil in order to do well and thrive, although there is much debate about what specific type of soil is needed for it to do best. Based on our experience with water lilies, a general consensus is that they require a good amount of heavy clay loam (dark grey clay) to anchor the plant firmly into the pot and medium. Following which, an additional mixture of natural burnt soil will keep the overall potting procedure clean and result in a very neat and tidy set up when planted into the water, like in the image shown.
How do you look after them?
Our First Floor lilies have all been well treated with a healthy dose of fertilizers to ensure optimal growth and flowering before putting them up for sale. Take comfort in knowing that this is the only action required from you to ensure they thrive and continue to flower for the days to come. Ensure that it is placed in a location with sufficient space at least 60cm wide, 25cm deep and that there is a good amount of sunlight during the day for the plant to flower.
How long do water lilies live?
How deep should a water lily be submerged?
A depth of anywhere between 25cm to 60cm is optimal for these aquatic plants. These water lilies typically grow on the shallow riverbanks across Thailand and prefer slow-moving or stagnant waters with muddy soil. For best practices always ensure that the water level is always above the budding region of the water lily.
How much space to grow water lilies?
If you're in Singapore and have a large pot or container of at least 60cm in diameter and 25cm in depth, congratulations my friend you can now be a proud owner of your very own Our First Floor water lily. Of course, with that being said, the larger the space the better. But these dimensions are the bare minimum I would recommend.
Will water lilies affect my fishes?
Of course, they will! Your fishes will be extremely happy to know that there are some real aquatic plants near them. Lily pads provide cover from the heat of the sun and the growing buds underneath the water surface provides new surface area for beneficial bacteria to grow, aiding in the “cleaning” of your waters.
