RED BOWL LOTUS has regal, bowl shaped flowers with dark red outer edges and creamy white centers. The rich, ruffled, textural petals and elegant coloration make this lotus a WORLDWIDE FAVORITE! This three dimensional bloom is sure to get your attention!
Lotus should be planted in the month of May, after all danger of frost has passed. Your lotus tuber can be stored in the crisper of your refrigerator until proper planting time for your area. Plant in wide, shallow container with heavy loam soil with 4" of water over surface of pot. Plant in a sunny location outdoors where it will receive at least 8 hours of sunlight each day. DO NOT use fertilizer until you have two aerial leaves growing out of the water.
Lotus are very heavy feeders! We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabbs + Humates for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simply press three or four fertilizer tabbs into the soil near the roots of your lotus, being careful not to damage the roots. Fertilize each month from June through September, as these are the growing/blooming months. Your lotus should grow and bloom the very first year!
