How To Plant Your Lotus
Plant your lotus in a wide container using loam soil. Your container should be at least 18 inches wide or wider. Add 2 - 3 inches of water above the soil and place your lotus in a sunny location that receives 8 - 10 hours of sunlight daily. Do not fertilize your lotus until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water.
How And When To Fertilize Your Lotus
Once your lotus has aerial leaves growing out of the water you may begin to fertilize your lotus. Use 1/2 the recommended dosage for your first fertilizer application. After your initial application, fertilize your lotus with the recommended dose of fertilizer every three weeks throughout the growing/blooming months. Make your last dose of fertilizer in early September. This will allow your lotus to go into dormancy naturally.
We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs for best bloom and optimum growth. Simply press the tabs into the soil near the roots of your lotus, taking care not to damage the roots.
