ahah, this fine mighty young tuber is ideal to create a flowering position.

Not only is it a young buxom thing with a couple of seasons growing in it, it has a single sprout, which is likely to encourage a blooming plant to develop

What is a tad remarkable, it was spotted sprouting in a pot left outdoors above the water level all Winter.

In barely an inch of mud, it has coped with 20's air temps through at least a dozen nights

Not only one of the prettiest of tropical waterlilies, it's also the most reliable...

A tuber of King of Siam takes off for an early Summer blooming position, while a tuber of Green Smoke, for blooming late Summer is patiently waiting with just the beginning of a sprout showing.

By streaming the start of the tropical waterlilies, it cuts down on too many outsized bug bitten gnarly plants piling up through most of Summer.

The early bloomers are trimmed and shuffled into tubering positions, the less heat tolerant late shift have time to pop spare offsets early
