Interesting plants of AJCB Indian Botanic Garden: AMAZON LILY (Victoria amazonica), Shibpur, Howrah: SCFEB23
Its been five months since i started it from seed. Initial one month no proper care was given as i was off to my home town, Kerala.
This is our first attempt to bring up V.amazonica. It was indeed hard to find a seller or grower of this species in India except few Govt institutions. Finally My desire to grow this beast ended in a water garden specialist in Maharashtra who basically imported few seeds from Thailand.
Victoria adventure is the only website guided us cultural practices. But couldn’t find any article on its cultivation or performance in tropics.
now its started producing few leaves with slight rims. Still learning the life history !! will keep posted….!
