      What is the smallest night blooming waterlily?

      Seems most night blooming waterlilies grow large with a wide spread. Are there any smaller varieties/species?

      I've bonsaied the sh!t out of some water lillies. I had one this year that lives in a 2 sqft x 6 inch deep plastic drawer bloom. the flower was only about 3 inches across...meanwhile in the front yard its sister throws 8 inch blooms nightly.
      I'd say if you want one to bloom it will be tough...but that one has grown in that drawer for 2-3 years. I never expected a bloom

      Well, I am not an expert with night bloomers but the species night bloomer N. lotus stayed compact for me in a tub. The container was 2 foot by 3 foot.

      Yes I have seen it advertised as an aquarium plant.
