Camellia Red Lotus has FABULOUS, vivid -pink blooms adorned with heavy red veining on lovely double flowers. Grows 1 - 3 feet tall and looks amazing in your pond or in pots on your balcony or deck! Camellia Red Lotus looks great when planted in front of taller lotus, giving you a layered look. Camellia Red Lotus is also beautiful in terrestrial gardens! Using a no-holes containers, simply dig a hole a little larger than your lotus container, place the no-holes container in the hole, making certain the top of the pot is even with the ground. Add heavy loam soil to the container, dig a trench in the surface of the soil in your container and place your lotus tuber in the trench. Cover your lotus tuber with an inch of soil--leaving the growth tips exposed. Add 3 - 4 inches of water above the soil in the container. You can have lotus anywhere in your garden as long as you have access to water and plant them in a sunny location! Always replace any water that has evaporated from your lotus containers throughout the summer months.
Plant your Camellia Red Lotus in a large, wide container in loam soil (topsoil mixed with clay, will hold together if you grab it) with 3 - 4 inches of water above your lotus tuber.
Plant in full sun (8+ hours of direct sunlight daily) and fertilize once a month AFTER the aerial leaves are standing out of the water. DO NOT fertilize before you have standing leaves or you will kill the plant.
Fertilize once you have at least two aerial leaves growing out of the water. We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs + Humates for optimum growth and best bloom!
