Lotus Planting Instructions
Plant in wide containers (20 inches wide) or wider using loam soil, dig a trench in the soil and place your lotus tuber in the trench. Be careful not to break or damage the growth tips. Cover the tuber with soil while leaving the growth tips exposed. Add two inches of water above the soil and place in a sunny location outdoors. In a week or two coin leaves will appear on the surface of the water, a week or two after that you should have aerial leaves growing on the surface of the water. Once you have aerial leaves, it is time to fertilize your lotus.
Lotus Fertilizing Instructions
Fertilize your sacred lotus plant monthly with fertilizer tabs after plant is established with two aerial leaves growing out of the water. We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simply press three fertilizer tabs into the soil near the roots of your lotus being careful not to damage the roots. Do this each month throughout the growing/blooming season (June through September). Your lotus should grow and bloom the very first year!
