Lotus is a type of water plant. It is native to Asia and it can be found all over the continent. The vast majority of lotus can be found throughout India, China, Japan, Korea, and many other Asian countries. It is characterized by its fragrant colorful flowers and broad leaves that float on the water surface. The stems, as well as flowers, contain lots of air spaces thanks to which they float on water. The flower is built of many petals that overlap each other in a symmetrical pattern. The plant creates a root system that is made of rhizomes that creep horizontally in the mud and ground below the water.

Lotus produces large round leaves that may reach up to 50 cm in diameter. The flowers produced by the plants usually are white, rosy, or pale pink with bright shades in the bottom part of each petal. They turn into hard, dark brown seeds. The seeds are usually round or oblong. The flowers are also dependent on the time of the day, as they open in the morning and close in the evening.

The plant is mostly cultivated from seeds. As a type of water plant, it requires moist and damp soil. Lotus requires lots of sunlight and should be fertilized at least once a year. It is not freezing resistant and should be protected from low temperatures.

Lotus is cultivated not only for its ornamental purposes but also has several medicinal uses. Its seeds are classified as astringent and have a good influence on the kidney, spleen, and heart. The seeds are also used to treat impotency and leukorrhea. Lotus is also used as an antidote for various types of mushroom poisoning. Lotus leaves combined with other herbs help to treat fever, dysentery, and sunstroke.

It is also an excellent source of food as the seeds are edible. Both leaves and stems are eaten as vegetables in many Asian countries, especially in India. Lotus tubers are similar to sweet potatoes in taste and texture. The flowers are used in cooking as a garnish, while the leaves are used as wraps. They are quite commonly used in Indian cuisine.
