Plant your lotus tuber in the month of May, after all danger of frost has passed. (Lotus tubers may be stored in the crisper of your refrigerator until proper planting time in your area). Plant your lotus tuber in heavy loam soil in a wide(11 - 20 inches wide or wider), shallow container. Dig a trench in the soil and place your lotus tuber in the trench, taking care not to break or damage the growth tips. Cover the tuber with soil while leaving the growth tips exposed. Add a couple of inches of water above the soil and place in a sunny location outdoors. Lotus need 8+ hours of sunlight to grow and bloom. In a week or so you should have coin leaves growing 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.
