Plant in the month of May, after all danger of frost has passed. Plant in a wide (24-48 inch or wider), shallow container using heavy loam soil. Dig a trench in the soil and place the lotus tuber in the trench, being careful not to break or damage the growth tips. Cover the lotus tuber with soil while leaving the growth tips exposed. Add four to six inches of water above the soil and place the container in a sunny location outdoors. (Lotus need 8+ hours of sunlight to grow and bloom) In a week or two after planting, 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. Once you have aerial leaves, it is time to fertilize your lotus.
Lotus are very heavy feeders! We recommend WATERLILY WORLD FERTILIZER TABBS + HUMATES for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simply press four to six fertilizer tabbs into the soil near the roots of your lotus, being careful 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!
