    I got my alpina from a german grower two years ago. You can try at Thomas Carow or Christian Klein. @carni grower: full sun kills the leaves of my alpina, they quikly turn yellow and die. You should obsevre your plants. Still, I don't know how strong the sun in Edinburgh is.

    Hi, I don't fertilize them. I have bearly time for them in the last few months, I just water the from time to time. Seems they like that kind of attention. However my nelumbifolia x reniformis didn't bloom this winter, but my alpina has around 10 flowerstalks already. I will upload some photos when the flowers are opened. Best, Ivan

    Hi Adam, thanks for the kind words and good luck with your office experiment. I've also heard of people growing quelchii and humboldtii successfully on windowsills. Maybe I should try with these two as well.

    It is a west facing window with direct sunlight. The humidity here in Cologne is constantly high, at the moment it is 50% in the room and 70% at the window.
