DESCRIPTION - A large aquatic herb, with a perennial rhizome large and tuberous, with internodes scarcely developed, furnished with numerous cylindrical adventitious roots abounding in air cavities ; the rhizome thick, of a brown colour externally, white within, changing to purple when cut (Schomburgk), decaying at the base as it developes leaves, flowers, and roots above, growing in 4-6 feet water. Petioles long, terete, clothed with copious prickles. Leaves floating, very large, 4 to 6 feet in diameter; when first expanded, oval with a deep narrow cleft at one end, almost exactly orbicular when full-grown, peltate, with the margin turned up all round, forming a rim like that of a tea-tray; the upper side of the blade full green, with numerous reticulations forming somewhat quadrangular areolae; the under side deep purple, or, according to D'Orbigny, sometimes green, (brownish red in the specimen from which our drawings were made), clothed with short spongy pubescence, with very prominent flattened ribs set edgeways on the lamina, radiating from the petiole to the circumference, and progressively diminishing in depth; these are united by cross ribs, also vertical plates, and the latter again by less elevated ones crossing them, so that the under surface is completely divided into quadrangular chambers, of which the ribs form the sides, and the general surface of the lamina the top, and as these detain air within them, they act as floats ; all the ribs - are more or less beset with spines, varying in length, sharp and horny, enlarged at the base. Vernation of the lamina corrugated-involute, that is, the greater part wrinkled up like the petals of the poppy, with the margin rolled in on all sides. Peduncles all axillary, from the rhizome, longer than the petiole(?), and rising above the surface of the water when the flower expands, terete, prickly, very copiously furnished with air-cavities, one-flowered. Flower 10 to 15 inches in diameter, somewhat pear-shaped in bud, fragrant. Calyx deeply 4-parted; the tube turbinate, green, very prickly, adherent to the ovary; the lobes of the limb large, oval, reddish purple, concave, deciduous, a little prickly on the outside towards the base, rather shorter than the petals. Within, at the throat, the calyx enlarges into an annular torus bearing the petals and stamens. Petals very numerous, the outer ones larger than the calyx, oblong, concave, obtuse, the inner ones gradually becoming narrower, much acuminated, and insensibly passing into petaloid filaments. When the flowers expand, which they do for the first time about five P.M., they rise five or six inches above the surface of the water, and become about half unclosed; at this time all the outer petals are white; this condition persists until about ten A.M. the next day, when the flower closes; about two P.M. of the same day it re-opens, assumes an upright position in the water, and the outer envelopes, which by degrees acquire a continually deepening pinkish colour, become completely reflexed, so that their summits touch the water all around ; more and more of the erect petals are reflexed until only the strongly incurved filamentous petals of a rose colour remain closed up ; but these very soon assume an erect position, spreading oil all sides at the summit, so as to form a rose-coloured crown surrounding the essential organs, the yellow colour of the stamens then becoming visible in the interior. About 11 p.m. the same night it closes permanently, and sinks below the water to ripen its seeds. The stamens are in about three circles, large, subulate, incurved below; anther-cells double, linear, introrse, occupying the inner face of the filament below the apex. Within the fertile stamens the torus is prolonged inwards for about half an inch, forming an arch over the stigmas, and bearing on its margin a circle of somewhat recurved, fleshy, born-like bodies. Pollen apparently with a single coat. Ovary adherent to the whole length of the prickly tube of the calyx, and thus turbinate like it, with a deep radiated depression or cavity at the top, and in the centre a small conical beak or column; it may therefore be called cup-shaped, with a thick fleshy base, having air-cells extending down into the peduncle; in this fleshy substance are contained twenty-six to thirty compressed cells, arranged at first in a very regular circle near the rim of the cup; as the ovules enlarge, the cells gradually come to occupy tine whole thickness of the germen, and by their mutual pressure are rendered irregular in arrangement and form ; their parietes consist of a reticulated spongy structure, partially gelatinous, and the ovules are attached to the reticulations by short funiculi, the funiculus being turned toward the axis of the ovary. The stigmatic surfaces are upon the rays on the top of the ovary. At the ends of these rays occur about thirty somewhat scroll-shaped or uniform, spongy, incurved, projecting bodies, which were formerly taken for stigmas, but are mere processes from the inside of the vault of the torus connected at their bases with the ends of the stigmas; the circle formed by the points of their junction is about three-quarters of an inch below the insertion of the petals and stamens, and within the cup formed by the torus and calyx tube. The seeds are rather large, imbedded in the spongy placentas, with a horny testa, yellowish when young, and brownish or black afterwards, with copious albumen. A.H.
MAs, kayaknya itu Victoria 'Longwood Hybrid' ( V. Cruziana X V. Amazonica ) Tapi mirip pula ama Victoria Adventure. Coba kalo mas fotonya dari samping bagus ya, kalo jadi mau donk.... tapi bingung jgua mau nanam dimana hehehe

Thanks hadiahnya! ;D
Sudah lama saya ingin ngoleksi lotus dan teratai, nggak nyangka malah dapat yang langka. Nantinya saya pengen beli pot keramik yang lebar, ditaruh di tengah-tengah halaman depan, diisi dengan teratai amazon ini.
Pak Suska, difoto dong teratai raksasanya termasuk potnya - buat inspirasi aja, dan sedikit teknik budidaya....kalau gak salah bagian dasar pot dikasih tanah, terus bijinya dibenamkan di situ ya?
