Planting Container for waterlilies is 16 inches x 7 inches deep and provides the best performance for waterlilies and small lotus. This container is the correct width for rhizomes to produce multiple flowers. Note we cannot ship one pot as it costs more to ship the large box than the cost of the container.
We recommend that you use heavy loam soil to grow your water garden plants.
