SWEET ACACIA LOTUS is a petite, semi-double lotus with pretty, pale yellow blooms with just a a hint of green. Yellow receptacles and nice green foliage complement this little specimen nicely! Great in containers on your deck, balcony or patio!
Plant your lotus tuber in the month of May, after all danger of frost has passed.(Lotus tubers may be stored in the crisper of your refrigerator until proper planting time in your area) Plant in wide, shallow container with heavy loam soil and 2-4" of water over the tuber, place in full sun and fertilize monthly AFTER two aerial leaves are growing out of the water.
Lotus are very heavy feeders. We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simply press the fertilizer tabs 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!
