Autumn in Moling Lotus should be planted in the month of May, after all danger of frost has passed. (Lotus tubers can be stored in the crisper of your refrigerator until proper planting time in your area.)
Plant your lotus tuber in a wide (14 - 24 inches wide or wider), shallow container using heavy loam soil. Dig a trench in the soil and gently place your lotus tuber in the trench, taking care not to break or damage the growth tips. Cover the tuber with soil while keeping the growth tips exposed. Add a few inches of water above the soil and place your lotus tuber in a sunny location outdoors. (Lotus need 8+ hours of sunlight to grow and bloom) In a week or two, you should have coin leaves on the surface of the water. In another week or so, you should have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Once you have aerial leaves, it is time to fertilize your lotus.
Lotus are very heavy feeders! We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs + Humates for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simple press the fertilizer tabs into the soil near the roots of your lotus, being careful not to damage the roots. Do this once a month throughout the growing/blooming season, June through September. Your lotus should grow and bloom the very first year!
