'Super' is a dazzling lotus specimen with 1st day flowers in shades of splendid, sugar-pink! 2nd day blooms are a combination of pink and white and with 3rd day flowers-- simply sweet perfection in pure-white! A remarkably beautiful lotus flower!
Plant this lotus specimen in a wide (24-48 inches) or wider, shallow container using heavy loam soil. Dig a trench in the soil and place the lotus tuber in the trench with the growth tips pointing up. Be careful not to damage or break the growth tips. Cover the tuber with a couple of inches of soil leaving the growth tips exposed and add four inches of water above the soil. Place your container in a sunny location outdoors where it will receive at least 8 hours of sunlight daily. In a week or so you should have coin leaves on the surface of the water. A week or so after that you will have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Once you have aerial leaves, you may fertilize your lotus.
Gently press 4 to 6 fertilizer tabbs around the roots of your lotus, being careful not to damage the roots. We recommend that you feed your lotus 4 to 6 fertilizer tabbs each month during the growing/blooming season (June through September). We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabbs + Humates for optimum growth and best bloom!
