Lotus Plant Description
An Exquisite of Bowl Lotus with a cherubic, pale-yellow bloom and splendid, dark-pink tips. Pink and Gold Lotus is a tremendous bloomer with lovely red seed pods. A lively, little addition to your deck or patio. Pink and Gold Lotus adds a unique and unusual touch to your water garden feature. Great in container gardens or a sunny spot on your deck or patio!
Lotus Planting Instructions
Plant this little specimen in a wide, shallow container using heavy loam soil. Make a small trench in the soil and gently plant the lotus tuber in the trench, keeping the growth tips exposed. Add an inch of water above the soil and place container in full sun. (Replace water as it evaporates from the container.) Soon coin leaves will appear on the surface of the water. A week or so after coin leaves appear, aerial leaves will grow out of the water. Once you have aerial leaves, you may fertilize your lotus.
Lotus Fertilizing Instructions
DO NOT fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Once you have several aerial leaves, fertilize your lotus at 1/2 the recommended dosage of a slow release fertilizer like 'Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs'. Fertilize every three weeks with the recommended dosage throughout the growing/blooming season, June through September.
Your lotus should grow and bloom the very first year!
