Nymphaea Stellata known to many people as Dwarf Water Lily is a beautiful plant that is easy to care for.

Once the plants grow roots you can remove them from the bulb and plant the roots in your substrate. 
Dwarf lily is suitable for low light aquariums to high light aquariums.
No special care is needed for Dwarf Lilies to do well.
Plant the bulb 1/4 of the way in your substrate.

You are buying 1 bulb that is beginning to sprout.

Grows like a weed
I had ordered this plant before, and after receiving two little bulbs with a coupe of leaves I wasn't sure how I'd like the plant. Within a month it took over my bettas 5 gallon tank, growing more than 10 inches and sprouting shooters and huge leaves. I used no special additives or substrates! One of them didn't survive my tanks temporary lack of light (well it may have, I'm replanting the bulb) so I ordered another one for my bettas tank upgrade. We will see how it grows but I'm confident it will fill out in no time.

So pretty!
I have no experience with bulbs whatsoever; this was a rather pleasant introduction. Tiny, half-inch leaves become five inch beauties. I do not mean to say newer leaves are longer than older growth-I mean miniscule purple points develop into large magenta monsters with dark specks. If this thing ever decides to flower, I don't know if my eyeballs can handle it.

Great plant!
I have never had a bulb plant ever, so I was surprised to see a huge bulb with a some narrow-looking leaves coming off of it. After I trimmed off some damaged leaves, and it acclimated to the tank, I was amazed at the new growth. Within two weeks, I could see that the new leaves would be rounder, larger, and redder than the original ones. I can't wait to see it grow! Love this plant, thank you!

An Outstanding Plant
The Dwarf Water Lily is probably the best red-leafed plant available for people with low tech planted aquariums like mine. To my knowledge this may well be the only plant available that produces leaves with such beautiful red coloring and does it with low lighting. I have had this plant go from a single tiny leaf to 15 leaves of various sizes with the biggest ones reaching the water's surface in about 6 weeks. It is the fastest growing and most prolific plant I have in a tank with anubias, swords and Brazilian Pennywort. I'll be pruning it back soon. I have it growing in a rich substrate and feed all the plants with minerals, capsule fertilizer and liquid CO2. I highly recommend this bulb plant to anyone who enjoys the beauty of a densely planted aquarium. It's a real winner.

I ordered 2 of these and I can't believe how big and healthy they are. The bulbs are both large and covered with small leaves and sprouts where even more leaves are starting. These are so healthy and flourishing right from the start. I can't imagine buying plants from any one else. Shipping, packaging, and communication are perfect

nice plant!
The bulb arrived with several roots and leaves. Packed so they didn't break off in shipping. Within a week it had sprouted more leaves which have taken on a nice rose color. So far it's staying small, but that might have to do with the fact that it's shaded other plants. Definitely a "dwarf" variety that won't take over.
