An Exquisite of Bowl Lotus with an exuberant, light-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. Plant this little specimen in a wide, shallow container using part topsoil/part clay. 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. Soon coin leaves will appear on the surface of the water. Add water to the container as it evaporates.
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. Fertilize every three weeks with the recommended dosage during the growing/blooming season. Exquisite of Bowl-Dwarf-Versicolor-single
