How to plant your lotus
Plant your lotus tuber in a wide, shallow, no holes container using loam soil. Fill the container 2/3 full with loam soil. Dig a trench across the surface of the soil and gently place the tuber in the trench. Cover all but the growth tips with an inch or two of soil, leaving the growth tips exposed. Gently add 4 - 5 inches of water above the soil and place the lotus container 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 container.
How to fertilize your lotus plant
Once your lotus plants have aerial leaves, you may fertilize your lotus. We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simply press the slow release fertilizer tabs into the soil near the roots of your lotus plants, taking care not to damage the roots. Fertilize your lotus once a month, June through September, making the last fertilizer application in early September.
