Lotus Planting Instructions
Plant this delightful specimen in a wide (24-48 inches or wider) container, using heavy loam soil. Dig a shallow trench in the soil and place your lotus tuber in the trench, being careful not to break or damage the growth tips. Gently cover the tuber with soil leaving the growth tips exposed. Add a few inches of water above the soil and place in a sunny location outdoors where the lotus tuber will receive at least 8+ hours of sunlight daily. In a week or two you will have coin leaves on the surface of the water. DO NOT fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water.
Lotus Fertilizing Instructions
Wait until you have aerial leaves to fertilize your lotus. Fertilize your tall lotus plant with 4 - 6 fertilizer tabs throughout the growing season (June through September). Simply press the fertilizer tabs near the roots of the lotus, taking care not to damage the roots. We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs + Humates for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use! Your lotus should grow and bloom the very first year!
