Autumn in Moling Lotus Planting Instructions
When planting your lotus, use a wide (16 inches or wider), shallow, no holes container using heavy loam soil. Dig a shallow trench in the top of the soil and carefully place your lotus tuber in the trench, gently pull soil over the tuber making sure to leave the growth tips exposed. Be careful not to damage the growth tips. Carefully add a few inches of water over the top of the soil and place your lotus container where it will receive at least eight (8) hours of direct sunlight. In a week or two you will have coin leaves on the surface of the water.
Lotus Fertilizing Instructions
Once you have aerial leaves growing out of the water you may fertilize your lotus plant twice a month, from June until September. Lotus plants are very heavy feeders and should be fertilized for vigorous growth and best bloom. An easy way to remember to fertilize your lotus plants is to mark your calendar to add 3-4 fertilizer tabs on the 1st and 15th of each month during the growing season, (June through September).
