Plant in a wide container (24 - 48 inches wide) using loam soil. Add 4 - 6 inches of water above the soil and place in full sun (8 - 10 hours of sunlight daily). Do not fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water.
How And When To Fertilize Your Lotus
Fertilize your lotus once you have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Use 1/2 the recommended dosage for your first fertilizer application. After the initial fertilizer application, fertilize your lotus every three weeks throughout the growing/blooming season with the recommended dose of fertilizer. Your last fertilizer application should be in early September. This will allow your lotus to go into dormancy naturally.
We recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simply press the fertilizer tabs into the soil near the roots of your lotus.
