Pekinensis Rubra MUST be planted in very large containers as the tubers are very large. Plant in large (24 - 48 inches in diameter or larger) container, using loam soil with 3 - 10 inches of water over the soil. Dig a trench in the surface of the soil and gently place the tuber in the trench. Cover the tuber with an inch or two of soil while leaving the growth tips exposed. Gently add 3 - 10 inches of water above the soil and place the container in full sun. (8+ hours per day or more) In a week or two you should have coin leaves on the surface of the water, a week or two after that, you should have aerial leaves growing out of the water, Once you have aerial leaves, it is time to fertilize your lotus.
Fertilize monthly after two aerial leaves are growing out of the water. We sell and recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs OR Landon Granular Fertilizer-- Pekinensis Rubra Lotus is great for pond or patio!
