Lotus Planting Instructions
Plant this tall lotus specimen in a wide, shallow, no holes container (24 - 48 inches wide) using loam soil. Fill your container 2/3 full of loam soil. Dig a trench across the surface of the soil and gently place the lotus tuber in the trench, taking care not to damage or break the growth tips. Cover all but the growth tips with an inch or two of soil, leaving the growth tips exposed. Add 4 - 5 inches of water above the soil and place in a sunny area outdoors. Lotus need 8 - 12 hours of sunlight to grow and bloom. Do not fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water.
Lotus Fertilizing Instructions
Lotus plants are very heavy feeders. We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simply press the tablets near the roots of your lotus taking care not to damage the roots. Feed your lotus from June through September, making the final fertilizer application in early September.
