How to plant your lotus tuber
Plant your lotus tuber in a wide, (24 - 48 inch in diameter, or wider) shallow container using loam soil. Fill the container 3/4 full of loam soil and dig a shallow trench across the surface of the soil and gently place your lotus tuber in the trench. Take care not to break or damage the growth tips. Cover all but the growth tips with soil, leaving the growth tip exposed. Gently add 4 - 5 inches of water above the soil and place the container where it will receive 8 - 12 hours of full sunlight each day. In a week or two you should have coin leaves on the surface of the water, a week or two after that you should have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Only after you have aerial leaves, you may begin to fertilize your lotus.
How to fertilize your lotus
Fertilize your lotus throughout the growing/blooming season. Your first dose of fertilizer should be 1/2 the recommended fertilizer dosage. Two weeks after your first dose of fertilizer you may fertilize with a full dose of fertilizer. Fertilize once a month with a full dose of fertilize throughout the growing blooming season, adding the last dose of fertilizer in September. Your lotus will begin to go into dormancy in the fall.
We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs for your lotus.
