2021 Flamingo Lotus has exotic, red-hot color that contrasts nicely with the attractive green foliage and is accentuated with a fringe of pink anthers that surround the yellow-gold receptacle. Flamingo Lotus is a tall lotus growing four feet tall or taller, with brilliant red color over the single petal lotus flowers. Flamingo Lotus adds an exciting vibe to your water garden feature.
Plant your tall lotus in a wide container, 24 - 48 inches wide, using loam soil. Add 4 - 6 inches of water above the soil and place in a sunny location where your lotus will receive 8 - 10 hours of sunlight daily.
How And When To Fertilize Your Lotus.
Do not fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water! Once you have aerial leaves, it is time to fertilize your lotus. The first dose will be 1/2 the recommended dosage. Fertilize your lotus every three weeks throughout the growing/blooming season making your last fertilizer application in early September. This will allow your lotus to go into dormancy naturally.
We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs for best bloom and optimum growth!
