Plant in a wide (16 - 20 inch wide or wider), shallow container using heavy loam soil. Dig a trench in the soil and place your lotus tuber in the trench, being careful not to break or damage the growth tips. Add a couple of inches of water above the soil and place in a sunny location outdoors. In a week or so you should have coin leaves growing on the surface of the water. Soon you will have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Once you have aerial leaves, you may fertilize your lotus.
Once you have aerial leaves growing out of the water you may fertilize your lotus. Simply push three fertilizer tabbs gently into the soil around the roots of your lotus being careful not to damage the roots. Fertilize with three tabbs during the months of June through September. These are the growing/blooming months. We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs + Humates for optimum growth and best bloom!
