re: Nuphar japonica
I corresponded with one of our fellow APDers, Loh K L, who lives in
Singapore, and he tells me the plant I have in the pic is the same as what is
sold as Nuphar japonica in Singapore.
A plant does not have to be native to the area from where it is grown. It may
just be propogated there. Discus culture is a prime example. More Discus come
from Asia than probably anywhere else in the world, but of course, it is a
South American fish.
What we probably have, if not the same plant, are different, but similar
looking members of the same genus.
I would think the care requirements would be similar.
To reiterate, the one factor I found that has helped me grow Nuphar
whatever-it-is has been the higher temperatures of the tank it is in.
