Planting and care
When your victoria arrives, unwrap it gently. It may be easier to float off the newspaper on the leaves in a bucket of warm water. Pot it into a large flowerpot with holes in the bottom. For decent size leaves, use at least a 4 gallon pot, about 18 inch diameter. The plants will not be too thorny to handle at this point in growth.
