    I am not a regular on forum pages , so apologies if I make initial mistakes.

    I will try and upload a photo later, also not so tech savvy...:)

    Its now spring so I need to repot the lilies and lotus andfoud this site whicst researching what is required.

    Thanks for the info so far.

    I wanted to add lotus to my pond but could not find a plant so planted some seeds I found.... No idea what type. Got lucky in that 2 of the 3 sprouted and are doing well.

    Of course within a couple of weeks I found a battered plant in a market and snapped it up.

    So my question is ....how do I know what type they are? All I have to go in is their leaf shape. I can try and send a picture of the leaves tomorrow.

    The one grown from seed has s a full round and flat, pale green leaf, but as this is a young plant, that may not help.

    The other plant is also doing well and we had one flower before the winter set it. White with a yellow middle, tipped with red. Very pretty and a surprise considering the state it was in. However the mild winter was a benefit. It didn't last long a day or so.

    So in addition to checking out how to re-pot these, I am trying to identify them.

    Thanks for the welcome....back to my research.
