Lily plants that you find in ponds require MASSIVE amounts of fertilizer. I'm curious to see if it's still thriving in a month or two. Most of mine lasted a few weeks and then, they slowly withered away, dissolving in the water. HUGE mess.

This will be a good test then :D If it starts to do badly I can put it back out in the pond, since I took it's pot out and I can re plant it. I put a big pond fertilizer(fish safe) near it's roots so hopefully that helps

Here's a update on my Lilly, it hasn't died yet so that's good. It keeps popping up new leaves and they've increased in size. It has a pond plant fertilizer in the gravel around it's roots. I also have a lot of rams horn snails now, although I don't mind too much(better then pond snails or trumpets)
The African butterfly in this photo is 2" for size comparison


The Lilly on the left is the biggest
