Nymphaea lotus

About a month ago I ordered a pre-set pack of plants for my planted tank, and among the plants was a small unidentified bulb.

Anyway, I thought I'd stick in the substrate and see if anything came of it. Four weeks on, and here it is. I've never known a plant to grow so quickly, and I'm trimming it back on a regular basis. I'm constantly removing leaves that have shot to the surface. The colour in the photographs doesn't do it justice. Apologies for the darkness of the shots, still getting to grips with my camera.









Once it's a bit more established I'm going to move it to a more central position and use it as a centrepiece. A big thanks to Dave66 for identification and info :)
