      Tropical water lilies

      My Lilies have started growing, I am still not sure what all I have. I am getting some pond tab with humates in tomorrow. I will fertilize them again and see what happens. Right now they are in 4 inch pots in a kiddie pool. I have grown some really nice huge tropicals in 4 inch pots in the past. We will see as summer progresses what I will do.

      Looks good so far, Gander. I hope you can identify them once they bloom.

      well I got 3 blooms today one looks a little cooked but I have a bad summer cold and have not walked down too where they are in a few days, Remember these are just in 4 inch pots so they are still quite small.

      Yes it is ever since one of the older members posted her pic on the old forum and I cant remember the name of it getting old but ran by a women named sue. I have been in love with it. The first one I got I think I had too pay about a hundred dollars for it. That was a few years ago though.

      ok have a few blooming today, They are starting too grow good in their 4 inch pots. I will fertilize again this week and maybe move some too another pool so they can spread out better. The white with Blue Edges is one I have never had before I think its beautiful. Its called purple joy, you can read about it here
