Plant in a wide, shallow container (14 - 20" wide) using heavy loam soil. Cover the lotus tuber with 1/2 an inch of soil, while keeping the growth tips exposed. Add two or three inches of water above the soil and place your lotus container in full sun, outdoors. Always replace water that has evaporated from your lotus container. Soon coin leaves will appear on the surface of the water. A week or so after the coin leaves appear on the surface, aerial leaves will begin to grow out of the water--once you have aerial leaves, you may begin to fertilize your lotus. Lotus are very heavy feeders! For robust plants and best bloom, use Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs. Simply press a couple of fertilizer tabs into the soil near the roots of your Beautiful Dancer Lotus, being careful not to damage the roots. Do this each month during the growing/blooming season, June through August.
Never fertilize your lotus until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water.
Fertilize with Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs + Humates during the growing/blooming season, June through September.
