Default African Tiger Lotus

Man, what am I gonna do with this thing. It's a beautiful plant, but, up
until a few weeks ago it was kinda wimpy, then I upped my co2 a little, put
in some Jobes fern spikes and this thing has taken off, It is in my 30 X 12
X 12 plant only tank and it is beginning to look like it is going to need a
tank all it's own. Don't dare put it in my planted fish tank, which is non
co2 at this point as I don't think it would survive the algae eaters. Maybe
keep pinching off the bigger and longer stems and leaves, or cutting back on
the feeding? Never thought I was going to have a problem like this with
plants. Love this plant and hate to have to stifle it in any way, but gotta
do something. Thanks.

Tell me about it !!! mine has had 2 babies already since I had it, and the
plant itself has gotten huge. I've had it for about 3 months now.

It's sure beautiful though, deserves it's own tank =)

You can always cut the stems off . Sometimes it will grow short and
sometimes long. .
