This is my one and only water lily plant. I has not stopped blooming since the day I bought it from the nursery. The boss selected the plant for me. She look for one with many shoots and buds growing from the bottom. She told me that it is important to put it in a place with the full sun and the plant must always be submerged in water.
If my observations are correct, the flower seem to open in the morning when the sun is shining and closes in the late evenings. It does this 2 times before the flower withers off. This picture above shows the flower when it opened on the first day.
This is my entry for Blooming Friday. My grateful thanks to Katarina at Roses and Stuff for hosting Blooming Friday. To see what others have posted or to participate, click here.
