Exquisite of Bowl-Dwarf/Pink/Double
Plant this EXQUISITE OF BOWL LOTUS in a small, wide, shallow container with heavy loam soil. Dig a trench in the soil and gently place the lotus tuber in the trench. Cover the tuber with soil while leaving the growth points exposed. Add 2" of water over the soil and place your lotus container in a sunny location outdoors. 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 are very heavy feeders. We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabbs + Humates for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simply press the 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!
