Dense Dew Lotus
Dense Dew Lotus blooms have dreamy, creamy-white, curled petals with rich, golden receptacles and softly kissed, pink petal tips. A gentle fringe of yellow stamens adorn the lyrical blooms on this cup shaped, poetic lotus. Attractive green foliage is the perfect complement for the Dense Dew Lotus. Dense Dew Lotus grows 10 - 24 inches tall, depending on container size.

Plant this lotus tuber in a wide (10 - 16 inch or wider), shallow container using heavy loam soil. Dig a shallow trench across the top of the soil and gently place the lotus tuber in the trench, being careful not to damage the growth tips. Cover the tuber with an inch or two of soil while leaving the growth tips exposed. Add two inches of water above the soil (this lotus is partial to shallow water) and place in a sunny location outdoors (8+ hours of sunlight daily). In a week or two you will have coin leaves growing on the surface of the water. In another week or so, you should have aerial leaves growing out of the water.
Once you have aerial leaves growing out of the water, you may fertilize your lotus. Gently push three fertilizer tabbs around the roots of your lotus, being careful not to damage the roots. Do this during the growing/blooming months (June through September). We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs for ease of use, optimum growth and best bloom! You should have blooms the very first year!
