2021 Red Elf Lotus is a sweet little pixie with light-red color washed over the pretty, pointed petals with a saturation of color at the petal tips! Sweet, multi-petal blooms are accentuated with creamy-white anthers and yellow-gold receptacles. This little sprite will delight the lotus enthusiast! This is an Exquisite Of Bowl Lotus and grows to 13 inches tall in a ten inch container.
Plant your small lotus in a ten inch wide container using loam soil. Add an inch or two of water above the soil and place in sunny area where your lotus will receive 8 - 10 inches of sunlight daily. Do not fertilize your lotus until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water.
Fertilizing Your Lotus
Once you have aerial leaves you may begin to feed your small lotus with 1/2 a dose of fertilizer. Fertilize your small lotus with 1/2 a fertilizer tab for the first feeding. Thereafter you may fertilize every three weeks with 1 or 1 1/2 fertilizer tabs throughout the growing/blooming months.
We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs for best bloom and optimum growth.
