Pant in large, wide, shallow, no holes container (24 - 48 inches wide or wider) in heavy loam soil and plant in full sun (8 hours + per day) with 4 - 6 inches of water above the soil. Fill your wide, shallow, no-holes container 2/3 full of loam soil. Dig a trench across the surface of the soil. Place your lotus tuber in the trench. Cover all but the growth tips with an inch of soil, leaving the growth tips exposed. Gently add a few inches of water above the soil and place in a sunny location outdoors. In a week or two, coin leaves will appear on the surface of the water, a week or so after that you will have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Do not fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water.
Fertilize monthly with fertilizer tabs once plant is established with two standing aerial leaves.
