White with deep purple tips, not 'picotee' but what this is called ...
The yellow color is allegedly from American lotus.

Beautiful pictures jujujojo! Thanks for sharing them with us.
Beautiful lotus I grow the giants. I gotta say I'm amazed at how good they do with so little room to grow. Mine need lots and lots of room if I try to grow them in small pots they die everytime.

I am no expert. But if you plant a mini in a bowl, one end (must be the correct end) of the tuber must be above water in air.
I never even knew these tiny ones existed!
Can you tell me where you got them?

Mini-lotuses are used widely in aquariums. WalMart used to carry a type of mini Nymphaea lotus. Google search "tiger lotus": here .
