Nymphoides hydrophylla ‘Taiwan’ is an unidentified Floating Heart species from southern Taiwan. It is also called Nymphoides sp. “Flipper” and “Flipper lotus”. Whereas other species from the genus Nymphoides soon grow floating leaves, Nymphoides hydrophylla ‘Taiwan’ keeps sprouting submersed leaves. These are of a bright green colour and somewhat transparent. The plant can quickly reach a height and width of 25 cm in the aquarium and grow to a maximum height of about 60 cm. It grows so fast that regular thinning of the leaves is necessary so that other plants are not shaded too much. When doing so, you remove the oldest leaves with the longest stalks. The plant reproduces by producing adventitious plants growing on the leaf stalk shortly under the leaf blade. For propagation, you simply cut off the leaves with the leaf stalk and let them float in the water.
