    It looked great when it arrived! I put it in the pond immediately and it's growing.

    May Contain Duckweed

    Posted by Alyssa on Aug 18th 2016

    Purchased 3 species of plant from here and one came contaminated with duckweed seeds. I'm pretty sure it was the frogbit, though, and not this lily.

    Lily took a little while to get growing. In fact, for about a month there where no visible changes. Then there was a bit of an accident with a dechlorinating agent and the two top leaves it came with started to die. This caused the plant to start sending up new pads fast. I now have 3 completely new pads at the surface, and the original pads are gone. Seems like it's going to continue growingb quickly now.

    Some notes: the established pads it came with were almost solid green, not like the flecked red color in the picture. But the new pads are so flecked they're almost solid purple! I guess they grow greener they mature.

    Anyways, I'm glad I purchased it! It's the crown jewel of my little pond. :)
