      Tropical water lilies

      Anyone interested in any small but healthy and growing tropical water lilies? I have King of Siam, Celon Pink and I think a Mrs. George C Hitchcock.

      Iíd love to trade for another tropical water lily (or tuber) but also Iím happy to get these in the hands of people who enjoy them (for postage).

      When I realize my pond was not a good for koi, I started growing lilies with the help of people on this site. Just hoping to share in this joy.

      The plants Iím offering arenít flowering yet and will need to be repotted and fertilized. The above flower pictures are for reference.

      Hey Biggie, do you bring them all inside during winter? I've never owned a tropical lily.

      Received the package yesterday and replanted them before turning in, Biggie! The plant was very healthy and arrived without any issues.

      Thank you again for your kindness!! Here it is beside Sioux filling out the gap in my modest pond.

      I let them go to tuber at the end of each summer, collect the tubers and store them over winter. The I start up new plants each spring. I am in zone 6b.

      Hi Biggie if you are still open to trades, let me know. I don't have any tropicals but I do have some hardy "Colorado" rhizomes I can send you.

      Hi Biggie, I'm picking up a couple of hardy Wanvisa next week, and I'd be happy to share if you're still open to trade? I know you're into tropicals, but Wanvisa does this incredibly cool bit where each flower has a different color pattern. Just sayin'.

      Hi Biggie, I just wanted to let you know that King of Siam has started to bloom for me since receiving the plant a few weeks ago, and to share a few pics of the pond. I used the Pondtabs you recommended and the plants have taken off this year!! Thanks again for the opportunity to own such a beautiful and healthy plant!

      SummerStorm93, sorry it took me a bit to respond. I only have one itty bitty Celon Pink left and it's a bit rough. You have happy to have it if you wish, but I don't think it will do much and with it being the end of the season I don't know if it is worth it. Also, thank you for the the offer, but I do have Wanvisa, a great lily!
