Plant this tall specimen in the month of May after all danger of frost has passed. Plant in a wide (14 - 20 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 break or damage the growth tips. Cover the tuber with soil but leave the growth tips exposed. Add four to six inches of water above the soil and place in a sunny location outdoors. (Lotus need 8+ hours of sunlight daily to grow and bloom) In a week or two 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 Tabs + Humates for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simply press four to six fertilizer tabs into the soil near the roots of your lotus. Be careful not to damage the roots. Fertilize once a month throughout the growing/blooming season (June through September).Your lotus should grow and bloom the very first year!
