    So, I've had a Tiger Lotus bulb in my tank for two weeks now, is this a large sprout from that plant? I'm not sure what it is, it's coming out from in front of the Rubin (where the bulb in planted). If this is the first real sprout from the bulb, should I not trim it back? It's about to grow out of the water...I swear it wasn't there two days ago!

    Thanks a bazillion and one.

    Yep, it's a leave from the tiger lotus. I have a tiger lotus from Jess that I swear was soaked in plant steroids when it was young. I have one or two leaves every week the size of two adult human male palms that make their way to the surface like lily pads. When needed, just cut the stem as close to the bottom of the plant as you can--you'll get more.

    You can see two massive leaves here in the left corner of the tank just "above" the black angel...tiger lotus are usually foreground to mid ground plants LOL:

    Yup thats a floater shoot.If you want to keep your main plant compact and full trim the floaters before they reach the surface,if you want flowers then allow the plant to get floaters.
