Hurricane, (Chinese: Jufen)
Luscious shades of rosy-pink adorn the ,wide, flat, outer petals as well as the cluster of ruffled inner petals on this delightful EARLY BLOOMER! Petal tips are saturated with deeper, rosy-pink coloration, making this HEAVY BLOOMING, fantastic lotus a standout! Give this specimen plenty of room in your pond or in containers on your deck or patio for BLOOM after incredible BLOOM!
Plant your lotus tuber in heavy loam soil in a wide (24-48 inches or wider), shallow container. Dig a shallow trench in the surface of the soil and place the lotus tuber in the trench, being careful not to damage the growth tips. Gently cover the tuber with soil, leaving the growth tips exposed. Add 4-6 inches of water over the surface of the soil and place your container in full sun (8+ hours of sunlight daily). In a week or two you should have coin leaves growing on the surface of the water. DO NOT fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Fertilize with fertilizer tabbs every month during the growing/blooming season (June through September).
Lotus are very heavy feeders! We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabbs + Humates for vigorous plant growth and best bloom! Simply press the tabbs into the soil, being careful not to damage the roots. These fertilizer tabbs are designed to deliver nutrients to aquatic plants.
