Fly To The Sky Lotus
Lotus Plant Description
Fly To The Sky Lotus 13 (Fei Tian) is a spectacular lotus variety with fabulous, wide-open flowers that stand above the large lotus leaves! Fly To The Sky Lotus is a tall lotus with exuberant, pink lotus flowers with flying/ dancing form. Fly To The Sky Lotus has pretty pink color throughout the bloom cycle with more color saturation on the petal tips on 2nd and 3rd day blooms. Bright, sunny-yellow centers are the perfect complement for this sacred lotus plant.
Lotus Planting Instructions
Plant your sacred lotus in a wide, shallow container (24 - 48 inches wide) or wider. Fill your container 2/3 full with loam soil. Dig a shallow trench on the surface of the soil and gently place your lotus tuber in the trench. Cover all but the growth tips with an inch or two of soil. Gently add 4 - 5 inches of water above the soil and place in full sun outdoors (8 - 12 hours of sunlight daily).
Fertilizing Lotus Plants
Once you have aerial leaves on your lotus plant, use a slow release fertilizer like '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 plant, taking care not to damage the roots. Feed your lotus plant from June through September, as these are the growing/blooming months.
