Keeping Water Lily::Mangkala Ubol>>Flower Page 2>>18/07/2016

Unread postby SCORPIO » Sun Mar 13, 2016 1:38 pm

Since long, I want to keep lilies. Last year started with one blue lily known as Nymphaea midnight caprice. This I decided to source more lilies.

First step is to choose suitable pot for keeping lillies. After reading, I choose a 12 inch height, plastic pot.

The Pot

Second step was to decide about substrate. First I thought to keep lillies in aquarium substrate. But finally I choose DIY substrate. This substrate is a mixture of local soil, construction sand and cow dung. All of these has been covered by gravels.

Finally filled with water

Comments and Suggestions are most welcome.

In coming days I am receiving some more Lily.

I got several lily free of cost from my friends.

Some got in exchange with other plants.

A single pot costs around 800 to 1000 Rs.
