How to plant your lotus
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 inches 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.
