How To Plant Your Lotus
Plant your large lotus variety in a wide (20 inches or wider) container using loam soil. Add 4 - 6 inches of water above the soil and place your lotus in an area that receives 8 - 10 hours of sunlight or more, each day. Do not fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water.
How and When to Fertilize Your Lotus
Once you have aerial leaves growing out of the water you may fertilize your lotus. Lotus are very heavy feeders. Your first dose of f fertilizer will be 1/2 dose. Push the fertilizer tabs down into the soil taking care not to damage the roots. A 1/2 half dose is 2 tablets for a large lotus. Every three weeks thereafter, feed your lotus 4 - 5 fertilizer tabs until September. Your last fertilizing should be in late August or early September. This way your lotus can go into dormancy naturally.
We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs for best bloom and optimum growth.
