Nymphaea caerulea, also known as the Blue Egyptian water lily or sacred blue lily, is a water-lily in the genus Nymphaea.
Its original habitat may have been along the Nile and other locations in East Africa.
It spread to other locations, however, already in ancient times, like the Indian Subcontinent and Thailand.
This beautiful aquatic plant produces blue flowers about 7/15 cm in diameter during the summer.
Its flowers have the same shape as the sacred Lotus or the pink water lily.
It can extend over about 1 meter.
The scent of the blue lotus is very delicate, subtle and refined.
In modern culture, blue lotus flowers are used to make various concoctions including blue lotus tea, wine and martinis.
Blue lotus tea is prepared by boiling the entire flowers for 10–20 minutes.
Recent studies have shown Nymphaea caerulea to have mild psychoactive properties.
Eating Blue Lotus can act as a mild sedative.
Both Nymphaea caerulea and Nelumbo nucifera contain the alkaloids nuciferine and aporphine.
Sowing blue lotus seeds:
For the germination of blue lotus seeds, sow your seeds in a tray of fine soil + sand previously moistened.
Cover your blue lotus seeds with just 1 mm, no more.
Place your tray in a sealed container and add water to cover your tray with 3 cm of water.
Finally, place your container in a warm place at a temperature of 25 to 30 ° C.
Germination seeds of Nymphaea caerulea usually takes 3 to 4 weeks.
Renew part of the water every week so that the water in the container is not rotted.
tip: place your container in a greenhouse or half-full sun, the temperature of the water will rise faster.
