'136 Lotus' came over to the US without a name, just a number, it has since been named 'Serendipity Lotus'!
Lots and lots of bright, beautiful blooms on Lotus # 136 or 'Serendipity' as it is now known, in shades of rosy-red. Serendipity Lotus is a reliable bloomer and an EARLY BLOOMER as well!
First day flowers on Serendipity Lotus have a ring of petals around the receptacle which gives it a lovely and unusual look. You will have 6 - 8 inch blooms all summer long on Serendipity Lotus! Serendipity Lotus grows 2 - 4 feet tall.
Plant in large sized, wide, shallow container (14 - 20 inches wide or wider) using heavy loam soil. Dig a trench in the surface of the soil and gently place your lotus tuber in the trench. Cover all but the growth tips with an inch or two of soil, leaving the growth tips exposed. Add a couple of inches of water above the soil and place in full sun, outdoors. Always replace water that has evaporated.
Soon coin leaves will appear on the surface of the water.
DO NOT fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water.
Fertilize once a month during the growing/blooming season, June through September, with Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs + Humates. They are FISH SAFE and safe for all aquatic life in your pond.
