How to plant your lotus
Choose a shallow planting container with no holes that is 14 - 24 inches wide or wider. Fill it 2/3 full with loam soil. Dig a shallow trench on the surface of the soil and gently place your lotus tuber in the trench, taking care not to bruise 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 2 - 3 inches of water above the soil and place in a sunny area outdoors that receives 8 - 12 hours of sunlight daily.
How to fertilize your lotus
Wait until you have aerial leaves to fertilize your lotus. If you fertilize too soon, you may burn the plant. We recommend 'Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs' for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simply press the tabs into the soil near the roots of your lotus, taking care not to damage the roots.
