Hi, I've just received this nymphaea and the instructions say to plant the roots downwards. I'm struggling to see which way up it is as all I can see are small spindly green shoots. 

 

Help! I don't want to plant it the wrong wafy.

Green shoots up, usually.  If in doubt, put it in a bucket of water until it's obvious.

Thanks I seem to have aquired some larvae of some sort with it too. No idea what though!
