Lotus Planting Directions
1. Use a 14 inch wide, or wider, shallow container filled 2/3 full with heavy loam soil
2. Dig a shallow trench on the surface of the soil and place your lotus tuber in the trench.
3. Cover all but the growth tips with soil, leaving the growth tips exposed.
4. Fill or Submerge your container with just two to four inches of water above the surface of the soil or growth tips.
5. Place in full sun outdoors. Lotus plants need 8 - 12 hours of sunlight to grow and bloom.
Be sure not to use potting soil or anything with organics that will break down quickly or float.
We do NOT fertilize at all when planting lotus tubers or they will burn.
