White/Exquisite of Bowl-Dwarf/ Multi-Petal
Plant your lotus tuber in a wide, (16-20 inch wide or wider), shallow container using heavy loam soil. Dig a trench in the soil and gently place your lotus tuber in the trench being careful not to break or damage the growth tips. Cover the tuber with soil while leaving the growth tips exposed. This specimen prefers shallow water so add 2 inches of water above the soil. In a week or two you will have coin leaves on the surface of the water--a week or so after that you will have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Once you have aerial leaves, it is time to fertilize your lotus.
Lotus are very heavy feeders. We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabbs + Humates for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simply press three fertilizer tabbs 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!
