2021 Green Jade Of Qinhuai Lotus has ruffles of white petals that surround the green receptacle on this delicate, Exquisite Of Bowl specimen. The semi-double flowers are full and lovely and the jade-green foliage is the perfect backdrop for this small gem! Green Jade Of Qinhaui Lotus grows 6 - 12 inches tall in small containers.
Plant your small lotus in a wide container using loam soil. Add 2 inches of water above the soil and place in a sunny location where it will receive 8 - 10 hours of sunlight daily.
How And When To Fertilize Your Lotus
Do not fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Once you have aerial leaves, it is time to fertilize your lotus. The first fertilizer application should be 1/2 the recommended dosage. After the initial fertilizer application, you may fertilizer once every three week with the recommended dosage of the fertilizer application. Your last dose of fertilizer should be applied in early September. This will allow your lotus to go into dormancy naturally.
For best bloom and optimum growth, we recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs.
