Plant in large sized, wide, shallow container using heavy loam soil while keeping the growth tips exposed.
Add an inch or two of water above the soil and place in full sun. 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. Keep two to three inches of water above an established plant and fertilize once a month during the growing/blooming season, June through September. We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs + Humates or Landon Granular Fertilizer for optimum growth and best bloom!
Increase blooms by using fish, safe, aquatic fertilizer after aerial leaves have formed on your lotus plants.
