Dwarf Lilies are beautiful small plants that can help fill out planted aquariums with their small, spade-shaped leaves!
Dwarf Lilies are relatively small, with a maximum leaf length of 4.7 inches (12 cm). Leaves are generally pinkish to red and grow together in a very compact fashion. They are good plants for decorating midground aquarium areas and filling it out. They need fairly bright light to keep them healthy as well as moderate fertilization. Overall, dwarf lilies are easy to keep, having a moderate growth rate and no special requirements.
