Lotus Planting Instructions
Plant in shallow, wide container using heavy loam soil with 2 inches of water above surface of the soil, place container in full sun and fertilize monthly after you have two aerial leaves growing out of the water.
Lotus Fertilizing Instructions
Once you have aerial leaves growing out of the water, you may begin to fertilize your lotus plant. Fertilize once a month throughout the growing/blooming season, June through September. We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simply press the fertilizer tabs into the soil near the roots of your lotus plant. Take care not to damage the roots.
