First time growing water lily from seeds.  Seeds are smaller than sesame seeds.  Germinate seeds in a jar of clean water, place this jar in somewhere bright and warm.  Slowly you can seed seeds germinating more and more.   Transplant them into small cup with some soil and slowly fill the cup with water or plant the seedlings in wet potted soil then put the pot in a container which fill with water.  Water level slightly over the seedlings.

第一次孵睡蓮種子.  種子大小比芝麻種子小些.  將種子放入一小罐清水中來孵, 將這罐置於明亮溫暖處等種子陸續發芽出葉後便可移植. 可分小杯種或中盆種後將中盆慢慢置入有水的容器中,水的高度略高於植物小苗.
