Fire Crane Lotus
Fire Crane Lotus has Rich Red Color! This sacred lotus is the perfect substitute for Momo botan lotus. However, we think that it is easier to grow and a much more dependable lotus than Momo botan lotus. "Fire Crane Lotus" is going to become the new favorite for small double-petals lotus!
Lotus Planting Instructions
Plant your sacred lotus tuber in a wide (10 inches or wider), no holes container using heavy loam soil. Once you have added your heavy loam soil to the container, dig a trench on the top of the soil and place your lotus tuber in the trench, being careful not to damage the growth tips. Make sure the growth tips are facing up and slowly add a few inches of water above the soil. Place your container in an area that receives at least 8 hours of sunlight per day. DO NOT FERTILIZE. In a week or two you will have coin leaves on the surface of the water, once those coin leaves have changed to aerial leaves growing out of the water, you may fertilize your lotus.
Lotus Fertilizing Instructions
Mark your calendar for the 1st and 15th of the month and fertilize your lotus with 4-6 Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs Plus Humates for vigorous growth and best bloom.
