Unfortunately the Victoria Waterlily house has reached the end of its years, and is now ready for restoration.
As a result we have not been able to grow the waterlily this year.
Victoria cruziana was germinated in January of each year, by May a new leaf was added every 5 to 8 days.
The photographs below show the remarkable growth rate of the leaves.
