Plant in a wide, shallow container using heavy loam soil. Dig a trench in the soil and place the lotus tuber in the trench being careful not to break or damage the growth tips. Cover the tuber with soil while keeping the growth tips exposed. Add a couple of inches of water above the soil and place lotus container in full sun. (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 are very heavy feeders. Feed your lotus once a month with Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabbs + Humates. Feed them throughout the growing/blooming season (June through September). Your lotus should grow and bloom the very first year!
