White with deep purple tips, not 'picotee' but what this is called ...

The yellow color is allegedly from American lotus.

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.

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 .
