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.
