How to plant your lotus tuber
Choose a wide (24 - 48 inches wide) or wider, shallow container and fill it 3/4 full with loam soil. Dig a shallow trench on the surface of the soil and place your lotus tuber in the trench. Cover all but the growth tips with one inch of soil, leaving the growth tips exposed. Gently add 4 - 5 inches of water above the soil and place container in full sun (8 - 12 hours of sunlight daily). Do not add fertilizer until you have aerial leaves.
How to fertilize your lotus
Once you have aerial leaves on your lotus tuber, you may fertilizer with 1/2 the recommended dosage of a slow release fertilizer. Two weeks after this you may fertilize your lotus again with the recommended dosage of fertilizer. Fertilize each month throughout the summer until September. No more fertilizer is necessary for the first year as your lotus will start to go into dormancy naturally.
We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs throughout the growing and blooming season for your lotus.
