This is a pretty, fast-growing, perennial water plant. It has flat, rounded, floating leaves, and delicate white and yellow flowers appearing in summer. N. Indica may be planted in the soil at the bottom of a pond in about 15" to 30" of water, although it is fairly tolerant of fluctuating water levels. This plant will naturally spread on its own. However, one can also divide it by cutting the stolons between the tufts and removing the plantlets to the new pond or allowing them to root in soil if not already rooted.
