Baby Doll Lotus is an exceptional bloomer with lily- white flowers that give an air of beauty and purity. Baby Doll Lotus bloom profusely throughout the season from June through September. Enjoy this delightfully enchanting, small lotus in your pond or in ornamental containers on your deck or patio. Adds serenity and peace to a sunny corner of your water garden.
Plant in a wide, shallow container using heavy loam soil. Dig a trench across the top of the soil and plant your lotus tuber in the trench, being careful not to bruise the growth tips. Add a couple of inches of water above the soil and place in eight (8) hours of sun in the shallow end of your pond or in ornamental pots on your deck or patio. In a week or two you will have coin leaves on the surface of the water.
Once you have aerial leaves growing out of the water, you may fertilize with three (3) fertilizer tabbs, placing them in the soil near the lotus roots about 3-4" deep. An easy way to remember to fertilize is to mark your calendar on the 1st and 15th of each month. Fertilize from June through September with Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabbs Plus Humates. Lotus are very heavy feeders, always fertilize for vigorous growth and robust bloom!
