    hi, are there any differences between these two plants?

    Nymphaea rubra and
    Red Tiger Lotus

    apart from colour what else? - they seem very similar? (growth patters, speeds, tendency to die and rot?)

    cheers :D

    Yes, these is a totally different leaf shape, and rubra does seem to get as spotty with the nice red to black tones. Rubra is mostly brown on top, and pink-red underneath.
