Birthday's Peach Lotus has lots of flowers on this beautiful, multi-petal specimen! Wide outer petals frame this dazzling beauty while swirled rows of ruffled inner petals create a 3 dimensional look. Rosy- pink petals with golden-yellow receptacle is a real standout! Dwarf-Medium/Pink/Multi-Petal
1. Take a 14 inch or wider shallow container filled with heavy loam soil (topsoil mixed and or clay soil and some 'play sand' (up to 30%), this mix should hold together if you grab it).
2. Dig a trench with your hand through the soil for the long bottom part of the tuber to be placed in the soil. Now gently place the lotus tuber in the trench and carefully cover in the sections between the growth tips which will remain sticking up above the soil.
3. You may place ONE single stone between two growth tips to prevent the lotus tuber from floating once the pot is submerged.
4. Fill or Submerge your container with just two to four inches of water above the surface of the soil or growth tips.
5. Place in FULL SUN. Lotus need LOTS of sun and room to bloom.
Coin leaves will appear on the surface of the water. Once you have aerial leaves on your lotus, it is time to fertilize. Fertilize with Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabbs + Humates for best bloom and optimum growth! Simply press three fertilizer tabbs in the soil around the roots, being careful not to damage the roots. Fertilize each month, using three fertilizer tabbs per month, from June through September.
