dwarf lilly plants are pretty easy to take care of and are readily available...atleast around here. They'll shoot leaves to the surface in a pretty short about of time provided they are given decent water conditions.

IME out door Lilly's don't do good in an aquarium. They grow to big, and they like a cooler temp.
You want to use a tropical Nymphaea plant for the best results.


BTW ......Nymphaeas are my fav plant, and I have over 100 bulbs in my tanks. So if you live in the States please shoot me a P.M, and I could send you a few for the price of shipping. :o

unfortunately i live in south east england :( i checked up some of the names and most are tropical types that have been aclimatised i've never seen any indoor types in stores the one i looked at was a pixie lilly which says on the label"good for barrels and other very small water features" so a long way from the common type that overtakes sizeable lakes. ill keep looking for tropical types but i've simply never seen them sold anywere
