Explore Lotus Bed, Plush Lotus and more!

The lotus, my favorite flower. Pure beauty grows straight out of wet mud, has leaves that completely repel water (superhydrophobicity), and has an exothermic property (makes its own heat) to attract and reward the insects it needs to reproduce. I hear some people like to eat it, too.

ב אֱלֹהִים, אֵלִי אַתָּה-- אֲשַׁחֲרֶךָּ: צָמְאָה לְךָ, נַפְשִׁי-- כָּמַהּ לְךָ בְשָׂרִי; בְּאֶרֶץ-צִיָּה וְעָיֵף בְּלִי-מָיִם.
