2021 Beijing Temple Of Heaven Lotus is a tall, red, single-petaled lotus that is adorned with bright, lipstick-pink lotus flowers that are complemented with gold, ruffled fringe surrounding the receptacle. Beijing Temple Of Heaven Lotus is another heavenly selection from Yileen Gardens in Nanjing.
Plant your tall lotus in a wide container 24 - 48 inches wide using loam soil. Add 4 - 6 inches of water above the soil in the container. Place where your lotus will receive at least 8 hours of sunlight each day and DO NOT fertilize until after you have aerial leaves growing out of the container.
How And When To Fertilize Your Lotus
You must wait until you have aerial leaves to fertilize your lotus. Your first fertilizer application should be 1/2 the recommended dosage. Fertilize your lotus every three week, making the last fertilizer application in early September. This will allow your lotus to go into dormancy naturally.
We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs for optimum growth and best bloom!
