Lotus Plant Description
Xiamen Bowl Rice Paper Lotus (Xiamen Wanlian) Small in size, BIG on beauty! Gorgeous, classic, white, single-petal flowers with attractive, glossy green foliage. Perfect for containers on patio or deck.
Lotus Planting Instructions
Plant lotus tuber in a small, wide, shallow, no holes container in loam soil, keeping growth tips exposed. Add 2 inches of water over the soil and place in full sun outdoors. 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 stunt or kill your lotus tuber.
Lotus Fertilizing Instructions
Fertilize monthly during the growing/blooming season, June through September. We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs for robust growth and best bloom!
