  The study aimed at investigating the seed germinability, vegetative propagation and early growth of a rooted aquatic macrophyte, Nymphaea lotus from Nigerian Inland-water body. Germination test was conducted using seeds collected from a water body in the Kainji Lake Basin and sprouting test was done with rhizomes collected from Eleyele dam in Ibadan. Seedlings were raised in the ecology laboratory and transplanted into 24 plastic bowls in the crop garden of the Department Crop Protection and Environmental Biology, University of Ibadan, where the seedling growth was studied for 14 weeks. The seeds commenced germination on the 12th Day After Sowing (DAS) with 77% average germination recorded on 21st day after sowing (DAS). The rhizomes started to sprout on the 7th day after planting with a relatively low percentage (4%). The growth study showed that there was increased in the number of leaf per plant, Leaf Area (LA), Leaf Area Ratio (LAR) and the Shoot height and Root length also increased as the seedlings grew older during the fourteen weeks (14 weeks) study. The result indicated that colonization by rhizome may not be as important as colonization by seeds. More so, the seeds are capable of germinating only when the soil is completely inundated with water. The results are explained in line with phenology of the plant.
