This remarkable, small waterlily from South America became known only recently as Nymphaea sp. "Santarem". It was apparently collected in the Brazilian Amazon region near Santarém and probably introduced to Japan first. It is said to belong to Nymphaea gardneriana that is widespread in tropical South America. In Europe it is still a little known rarity. Its submerged leaves display olive green, brownish to reddish tones with a slight dark red spot pattern. The younger leaf stalks are finely haired. The plant stays quite low, especially under intense lighting. It propagates under aquarium conditions by runners.
Nymphaea gardneriana "Santarem" has apparently no special demands, however we recommend nutrient-rich substrate, rather strong lighting and a good CO2 and nutrient supply via the water column. Low lighting causes long leaf stalks. Well-growing plants develop many runners in and above the ground, ending in young plantlets. Especially when the water level is low, this waterlily also develops floating leaves that can be removed if they are unwanted. However floating leaves should be left if development of flowers is desired. Nymphaea gardneriana is night-blooming as well as the related Nymphaea glandulifera; the white flowers are strongly scented.
This waterlily novelty looks nice in the foreground and midground. It offers interesting possibilities for the aquascaping, for example combined with slender driftwood and vertical, grass-like plants such as Eleocharis sp. "montevidensis". It forms a decorative group by its runners.
Please be aware that the submerse form of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.
Aquasabi is our own brand, under which we offer high-quality products with a very good price-performance ratio. Carefully selected CO2 diffusers, CO2 bubble counters or lily pipes are just some of the items we sell under this brand and which will surely add to the value und the beauty of any aquascape.

Besides the good price-performance ratio, our main focus is on the satisfaction of our customers. This is the reason why our doors are always open for those who need help with our products.
When it comes to special aquatic plants, water plants from Aquasabi are just the thing for you. We offer rarities from our own cultivating tanks or import them specifically. These plants are otherwise hard to come by, and most of them cannot be purchased from other shops. We have high quality standards, which make Aquasabi plants a good choice for aquascapers, planted tank enthusiasts and aquatic plant collectors who want to enrich their tanks with rare aquatic plants. Special mosses, particular stem plants, hard-to-come-by ferns or very rare forms of the genus Bucephalandra are only a few of the plants we are proud to offer.

Die Nymphaea gardneriana "Santarem"
kam im kleinen Pflanzen Körbchen an, war gut gewachsen und sehr gut durchwurzelt ; Zudem trug sie zwei kleine Jungpflanzen
an Ausläufer - von daher kann ich für mich sagen "relativ viel Pflanze für das Geld" !!
Entsprechend an die neuen Umgebungstemperaturen (Januar) gewöhnt, vorbereitet & gepflanzt hat sie sich in ihrer neuen Umgebung aufgerichtet und fängt langsam aber sicher an zu wachsen, auch die Jungpflanzen werden größer ;
Erwähnen möchte ich noch die Pflanzenbeschreibung, welche genauso zutrifft - schönes Farbbild der Seerose !
Zwar nicht wirklich günstig, aber
ein echtes Highlight - ich bin gespannt wie sie ihre weitere Entwicklung fortsetzt ..
und werde zu gegebener Zeit
darüber schreiben ;
Besten Dank und Gruß, Carsten

I was super excited when I saw Aquasabi had these and even though they were the most expensive aquatics plants I ever bought, I thought it would be worth it...however the plants arrived and were very small. I spoke to Aquasabi about this and they apologised and explained this is how the plants come in. However, after two months they are putting out quite large leaves and lots of little runners which is making me happy!
