Lotus in Guyana:
You can find these colourful pond flowers and their distinctive waterproof leaves growing in waterways all over Guyana. The Lotus plant is known by several names including the Sacred Lotus, Indian Lotus, Egyptian Bean, and Bean of India. The scientific name of the Sacred Lotus is Nelumbo nucifera. They are sacred in the Hindu religion and Buddhism. Its delicate features make it a common, decorative plant in aquatic gardens and are even resistant to pollution. Lotus flowers have the ability to bloom in the murkiest of waters and because of this, it is revered as a symbol of purity.

The Sacred Lotus is native to central and northern India, Indochine, and East Asia. It also grows in countries like Russia, Sri Lanka, New Guinea, Australia, the Caribbean and Guyana. However, the earliest knowledge of the lotus was depicted in paintings in Egypt.
