[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Nymphaea “Queen of Siam” This lily is viviparous, it produces little new plants from the pads. Viviparity is signaled by a nub at the point at which the pad and stem join. At first it often looks gelatinous and soon shows signs of developing leaves. As the parent pad ages the new little plant becomes more developed and, by the time the host pad has deteriorated, it is a miniature copy of the parent.
