This flower seems to have an aura or something. Beautiful take, do you mind if I save it on my computer?

Could someone tell me what requirements are needed to propogate the seeds of the nelumbonaceae. I have scarified 3 seeds and placed them in water and 2 have germinated with a green shoot protruding from the seeds. What do I do now. Leave them in the water? ????
