Lotus Plant Description
Gorgeous Lotus is a tall, brilliant-red, multi-petal, sacred lotus with 'gorgeous' red lotus flowers on 1st day blooms and shades of red to pink on subsequent blooms. Gorgeous Lotus is a beautiful addition to your water garden feature! Attractive, emerald-green foliage and bright, yellow-gold receptacles on the Gorgeous Lotus Plant complement this lotus nicely!
Lotus Planting Instructions
Plant your lotus tuber in a wide, shallow container using loam soil. Fill the container 2/3 full of loam soil. Dig a trench on the surface of the soil. Gently place the lotus tuber in the trench taking care not to break or damage the growth tips. Cover all but the growth tips with an inch or two of soil, leaving the growth tips exposed. Gently add 5 - 6 inches of water above the soil and place in an area outdoors that receives 8 - 12 hours of sunlight daily.
How To Fertilize Your Lotus Plant
Fertilize your lotus only after you have aerial leaves growing out of the water. We recommend 'Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs' for optimum growth and best bloom.
