Sir genus Nymphaea means water lily. The plant in your pond is water lily. Lotus is Nelumbo nucifera with leaves above the water surface.

Saurabh Mathur Ji, please not sir.

You are right. Most of my family members call it lotus, so always it is lotus for me.

Sorry for the negative remark. The flower is indeed very beautiful.

P.S. Rajeev, with your immense knowledge and dedication, you deserve the title.

Nice arrangement. I have also covered the tank with a net. Temperature is very low so now my lily is not flowering. Is everything normal?
