This lotus was a gift from Dr. Daike Tian and is a symbol of the combined cooperation between the United States and China. Sino American Excellence M330 Lotus is an impressive lotus that will be a standout in your water feature!
How To Plant Your Lotus
Plant your tall lotus variety in a wide container using loam soil. Containers should be at least 24 inches in diameter or wider. Add 4 - 6 inches of water above the soil and place where your lotus will receive 8 - 10 hours of sunlight daily. The more sun the better! Do not fertilize your lotus until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water.
How And When To Fertilize Your Lotus
Once you have aerial leaves growing out of the water, you may begin to fertilize your lotus. Your first fertilizer application should be 1/2 the recommended dosage. Simply press three fertilizer tabs into the soil of your lotus container, taking care not to damage the roots. After the initial fertilizer application, feed your lotus 4 - 6 fertilizer tabs every three weeks during the growing/blooming season. Your last dose of fertilizer should be in early September. This will allow your lotus to go into dormancy naturally.
Lotus are very heavy feeders and will not bloom as heavy or at all without fertilizer. 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.
