Plant in heavy loam soil using a large, wide, shallow container (at least 20 - 48" wide) in diameter and place in full sun with 6 - 8 inches of water above the lotus tuber, once established, you may increase the amount of water above the tuber to about 14 inches. Do not disturb the lotus tuber once it has broken dormancy (once it begins to grow). NEVER fertilize until two aerial leaves are growing out of the water, then fertilize monthly with fertilizer tabs.
Pondmegastore Tip Once you plant your lotus tuber, the plant should not be disturbed or transplanted. The container you plant your lotus in--will be the planting container for the year.
