Jakkaphong Hardy Waterlily
First released by Pond Megastore in the USA!
Jakkaphong, a spectacular, hardy waterlily from the young hybridizer, Jakkaphong Sung-ngam, from Thailand. This stunning waterlily has deep-fuschia blooms speckled with striking white petals in an array of patterns over the flower. An interesting and exotic contrast! This unique and unusual hybrid will have varying numbers of white petals throughout the bloom. However, 90 - 95% of the color will be deep-fuschia! Modest bloomer: if you want something with more flowers, we suggest PINK DREAM!
This magnificent specimen grows quickly, blooms beautifully, and is a great choice for the collector, the hobbyist, or beginners!
Plant this exciting specimen in a wide (14 - 16 inches in diameter), shallow container using heavy loam soil. Place from 6 - 30 inches beneath the water's surface in full sun.
Fertilize with Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs + Humates, for optimum growth and best blooming every 2-3 weeks through spring and summer!
Use 3 to 4 tablets for water lilies every two weeks; we suggest the 1st and 15th of each month for optimal and continuous flowering until fall! Remember, lilies also like full, direct, unobstructed sunlight as much of the day as possible and regular dividing at the root as needed. Any cramped pots will lessen the blooming of waterlilies. A 15" fabric aquatic growpot with handles is suggested for any medium or large waterlily. The 7.5-inch pots are okay for up to 8 months of growth for smaller waterlilies.
PondGro Aquatic Soil is perfect for those who do not have access to plain good topsoil for their waterlilies. We never suggest aquatic planting media, pea gravel, or other stones for pond plants. You will end up with lots of mortality and plants that never perform. Only plain sifted Topsoil should ever be used for waterlilies; it can have a heavy sand base or clay base but should not include organic compost, so never buy anything bagged as that always has compost added, which floats and rots.
