Species information
Scientific name: Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn.
Common name(s): sacred lotus, Indian lotus
Conservation status: Not yet evaluated against IUCN criteria.
Habitat: Warm-temperate to tropical climates, in a range of shallow (up to about 2.5 m deep) wetland habitats, including floodplains, ponds, lakes, pools, lagoons, marshes, swamps and the backwaters of reservoirs.
Known hazards: None known, although Nelumbo nucifera contains some alkaloids, such as nuciferine, aporphine and armepavine.

The sacred lotus is a perennial aquatic plant with rhizomes (often mistakenly called 'roots') that grow in the mud at the bottom of shallow ponds, lakes, lagoons, marshes and flooded fields. Its large, peltate (with the leaf-stalk attaching to the centre, rather than the edge) leaves rise above the water surface on 1 to 2 m long petioles. The strikingly water-repellent leaf surface has inspired the term 'lotus effect'. This term describes the leaves' self-cleaning capacity which is a result of dirt particles being picked up by water droplets due to a complex nanostructure of the leaf surface, which minimises adhesion.

Important:Due to the natural environment and insect pollination, the species cannot be 100% guaranteed so the flowers might looks a bit different. Please click here to ask a question
