Use heavy loam soil or aquatic planting medium in large, wide, shallow pots (24 - 48 inches wide or wider) or in your pond, keep growth tips exposed and add a few inches of water above the soil.
Plant in full sun (8+ hours of strong sunlight per day) and fertilize once established with two standing aerial leaves out of the water.
Tall/Large lotus specimens are often used as a vegetable crop rather than an ornamental flower.
If using this tuber as a vegetable, it must be planted in a large, shallow pond, not a container.
Tubers must grow 2 - 4 inches in diameter to be used for cooking purposes.
