Re: Lotus...I think

Ken asked about his lotus 

"Lotus" is a common name and used for species of the genus Nymphaea as well 
as Nelumbo.  It's not uncommon for a common name to be used for more than 
one genus. See our Nyphaea lotus at 
http://www.brainyday.com/jared/aquarium/discus/nymphea.htm We once had 
Nymphaea stellata (I think) which has even larger leaves.
