Plant using wide, shallow pots (11-20 inches wide) and 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 leaving the growth tips exposed. Add a few inches of water above the soil and place in a sunny location outdoors. 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--in another week or two 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 three fertilizer tabbs into the soil near the roots of your lotus being careful not to damage the roots. Do this once a month throughout the growing/blooming season. Your lotus should grow and bloom the very first year!
