Exquisite of Bowl-Dwarf/Changeable/Multi-Petal
Plant this delightful little specimen in an eleven to 30 inch wide, shallow container using loam soil. Dig a shallow trench in the soil and gently place the lotus tuber in the trench. Cover all but the growth tips, leaving them exposed. Add an inch or two of water over the soil and place in a sunny location outdoors. (8+ hours of sunlight daily). In a week or two, you should have coin leaves on the surface of the water. Always replace any water that has evaporated from the lotus container. Once the coin leaves turn into aerial leaves, you may fertilize your lotus tuber.
Once you have aerial leaves growing out of the water, you may fertilize your lotus by gently pressing pond tabbs into the soil, near the roots of your lotus. Be careful not to damage the roots. Use three fertilizer tabbs per month, from June through September. We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabbs+Humates. We recommend them for ease of use, vigorous growth and best bloom!
