Lotus Planting Instructions
Plant your sacred lotus in wide, shallow containers ((20 inches wide or wider), in heavy loam soil. Dig a trench in the soil and place the lotus tuber in the trench. Cover the tuber with soil while leaving the growth tips exposed. Add 2 - 4 inches of water above the soil and place your container in a sunny location outdoors. (Lotus need 8+ hours of sunlight to grow and bloom) In a week or two you should have coin leaves on the surface of the water--a week or two after that you should have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Once you have aerial leaves, it is time to fertilize your lotus.
Lotus Fertilizing Instructions
Fertilize monthly with fertilizer tabs once two aerial leaves are growing up out of the water. We recommend WATERLILY WORLD FERTILIZER TABS + HUMATES for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use! Simply press three or four fertilizer tabs into the soil near the roots of your lotus. Do this each month during the growing/blooming season (June through September). Your lotus should grow and bloom the very first year!
