Green Star Lotus
Green Star Lotus is a SENSATIONAL addition to your koi pond, water garden or in large, ornamental containers on your deck or patio! An exceptionally beautiful, tall, white, classic single petal flower with a lime-green receptacle that is surrounded by golden-yellow stamens. This SPECTACULAR lotus hybrid produces impressive seed heads that help to create dramatic fresh or dried floral arrangements! One of the loveliest tall, whites anywhere!
Pondmegastore Tip: Hang your lotus seed heads upside down to dry them, this will allow the seed heads to be facing up in arrangements!
Lotus tubers may be stored in the crisper of your refrigerator until proper planting time in your area) Plant your lotus tuber in a very wide (24-48 inches wide or wider), shallow container using heavy loam soil. Dig a trench in the soil and gently place your lotus tuber in the trench, being careful not to damage or break the growth tips. Cover all but the growth tips with soil and add a few inches of water above the soil. Place your container in full sun. (Lotus tubers should be planted in the month of May.) In a week or two you should have coin leaves growing on the surface of the water, a week or so after that you should have aerial leaves growing out of the water. DO NOT fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water.
Lotus are very heavy feeders! We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabbs + Humates for
1.) Optimum growth
2.) Best bloom
3.) Ease of use
Simply press three or four fertilizer tabbs into the soil near the roots of your lotus, taking care not to damage the roots. Do this once a month throughout the growing/blooming season, June through September. Your lotus should grow and bloom the very first year!
