    Hi

    Does anybody have or know where I can buy Nymphaea Lotus (Tiger Lotus) from? Preferrably the purple-reddish colour, but any one will do. So far only one person knew what I was talking about when I asked for this plant on one of my LFS crawling days, and I was told it is a very difficult plant to find here in S.A.

    Thanks guys
    Dale

    I believe Peckoltia Enterprises brought some Nymphaea sp. in a while back.

    Ask your LFS to contact them and\or order if they still have any.

    RC: Yes we did bring some in but they were sold out before the stock landed. To be honest I could not even get one for myself...

    Thanks WBS. What are you looking for re trade, or will cash do? Please PM me with your response so that I can can transfer the money to you. Any chance you also perhaps have Hydrocotyle Verticillata pls?

    @ R.C - I placed an order for limnophilia sessiliflora about 2 months ago with a LFS (because nobody had) and I'm still waiting to hear from them. Luckilly I found the limnophilia elsewhere
