|Common name||Day Blooming Water Lily|
|Germination||The seeds can be sprouted in warm water and potted individually, but others prefer to plant them before they sprout. The number of seeds determines the container size, everything from small pots to dish pans to small ponds. Put a layer of any good growing medium in the bottom, add water to the brim, level and compact the soil once it has settled from filling with water. Then distribute the seeds as evenly as possible over the soil and drizzle a thin layer of white sand, through the water, over the seeds. This helps to anchor them and to see them as they sprout. Adding water after putting the seeds are put in can dislodge them, as can placing the container in a pond, so do it carefully.
When the seedlings have made several floating leaves in smaller containers, carefully dig them up and pot them individually. In small ponds designed for seedlings, let the plants grow to blooming stage and then remove them, either to propagate or discard, making more space for still developing seedlings. Germination can take longer. Be patient!
