Lotus Planting Instructions
Plant this small lotus in a wide, shallow, no holes container (11 - 20 inches wide) using loam soil. Fill the container 2/3 full with loam soil. Dig a shallow trench across the surface of the soil and place the lotus tuber in the trench. Cover all but the growth tips with an inch of soil and gently add an inch or two of water above the soil. Place your lotus container in a sunny area outdoors where it will receive 8 - 12 hours of sunlight daily. Check the water levels often and replace any water that has evaporated throughout the summer. Do not fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water.
Lotus Fertilizing Instructions
Fertilize your lotus June through September with a slow release fertilizer like Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs. Simply press the tabs into the soil near the roots of your lotus plant, taking care not to damage the roots.
