Plant your lotus tuber in the month of May, after all danger of frost has passed. (Lotus may be stored in the crisper of your refrigerator until proper planting time in your area) Plant your lotus tuber in a wide, shallow container in heavy loam soil and 2-4" of water above tuber. In a week or two you should have coin leaves on the surface of the water, a week or two after that, you should have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Once you have aerial leaves, it is time to fertilize your lotus.
Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabbs + Humates will nourish your lotus giving you optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simply press the fertilizer tabbs into the soil near the roots of your lotus, taking care not to damage the roots. Do this once a month throughout the growing/blooming season, June through September. Your lotus should grow and bloom the very first year!
