Perfect for containers on your deck or patio! After danger of frost has passed, plant lotus tuber in large, wide, shallow container using heavy loam soil or aquatic planting medium.To plant your lotus, make a trench in the soil and place your lotus tuber in the trench being careful not to bruise the tuber or break the growth tips. Keep growth tips exposed and add 2-4" of water over soil. Place in full sun.
In a week or two you will have coin leaves on the surface of the water, DO NOT FERTILIZE until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Once you have aerial leaves, fertilize monthly during the growing/blooming season. We recommend and sell Landon's Granular Fertilizer or PondTabbs+Humates. We recommend them for vigorous plant growth and best bloom. Dwarf-Medium-Pink-Double
