Lovely, double-petaled flowers in glorious shades of red on this early blooming, HEAVY BLOOMER! Blooms all summer long and makes a captivating focal point in your pond, pool side or on your patio! This is a great alternative to Momo Botan, this variety blooms much better.
Plant in a wide (24-48 inches wide) or wider, shallow container using heavy loam soil. Dig a shallow trench across the surface of the soil and place your lotus tuber in the trench being careful not to damage the growth tips. Cover all but the growth tips with an inch or two of soil and gently add about four inches of water above the soil. Place your container outdoors where it will receive 8+ hours of full sun daily. Do not fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water.
Fertilize monthly with Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabbs from June through September. Simply push 4 to 6 fertilizer tabbs into the soil around the roots of the lotus, being careful not to damage the roots. Your lotus should grow and BLOOM the very first year!
