How To Plant Your Lotus
Plant your bowl lotus in a ten inch wide container using loam soil. Add 1 - 2 inches of water above the soil and place in a sunny location where your lotus will receive 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. Start by giving your Bowl Lotus 1/2 a fertilizer tab, which is 1/2 the recommended dosage. Thereafter, do fertilize your lotus every three weeks with 1 to 1 1/2 fertilizer tabs as lotus are very heavy feeders! Fertilize throughout the growing/blooming season making your 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!
