Place in a sunny location outdoors. (Lotus need 8+ hours of sunlight to grow and bloom! DO NOT ADD FERTILIZER until you have two aerial leaves growing out of the water. (Lotus may be stored in the crisper of your refrigerator until proper planting time for your area)
Fertilize once a month with fertilizer tabs throughout the growing/blooming season, June through September.
