How do I plant my lotus?
Plant this beautiful specimen in a wide, (24 - 48 inches wide or wider), shallow container using heavy loam soil. Dig a trench in the soil and gently place your lotus tuber in the trench, being careful not to break or damage the growth tips. Cover the tuber with soil while leaving the growth tips exposed. Add four to six inches of water above the soil and place in a sunny location outdoors. (Lotus should be planted by the end of May, after all danger of frost has passed. (Lotus tubers may be stored in the crisper of your refrigerator until proper planting time for your area) In a week or two, you will have coin leaves on the surface of the water--a week or two after that you will have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Once you have aerial leaves, it is time to fertilize your lotus.
How and when do I fertilize my lotus plant?
Lotus are very heavy feeders! We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simply press four or six tabs into the soil near the roots of your lotus, being careful not to damage the roots. Do this once a month throughout the growing/blooming season, June through September. Your lotus should grow and bloom the very first year!
