Xiamen Bowl Rice Paper Lotus (Xiamen Wanlian) Small in size, BIG on beauty! Gorgeous, classic, white, single flowers with attractive, glossy green foliage. Perfect for containers on patio or deck.
Plant lotus tuber in a medium sized, wide, shallow container in heavy loam soil, keeping growth tips exposed. Add 2" of water over the soil and place in full sun. In a week or two, you will have coin leaves growing on the surface of the water. DO NOT fertilize until after the aerial leaves are growing out of the water. Fertilizing too early will rot your lotus tuber.
Fertilize monthly during the growing/blooming season, June through September. We recommend and sell Landon Granular Fertilizer or PondTabbs+Humates for robust growth and best bloom!
