Pamela Tropical Water Lily

Pamela (blue tropical waterlily) was a fantastic bloomer this summer. I had it in an outdoor pond, where it was about 8" below the water level. It bloomed right up to the time that I took it out of the pond for the winter. I removed the lily from its large pot, trimmed off the majority of the root structure and all of the leaves and blossoms, and replanted the small root into a small pot. It is now in my hydroponics room under grow lights, and is starting to produce very tiny leaves. I'm excited that it is starting to grow again.
