Pee Bee Pink Lotus 

Plant Description 

Pee Bee Pink Lotus is a tiny, little jewel in sweet shades of pink! This is an Exquisite Of Bowl Lotus that can be grown in smaller containers as a 'micro' lotus. PeeBee Pink Lotus is a delightful, single-petal lotus and an early bloomer. PeeBee Pink Lotus looks great when placed in small containers in a sunny location on porch or patio. PeeBee Pink Lotus was hybridized by Paula Biles, one of the authors of the book,    'The Lotus, Know It And Grow It'. PeeBee Pink Lotus blooms often throughout the summer! 

Exquisite Of Bowl/Pink/Single-Petal

Planting Instructions

Plant your Pee Bee Lotus in a wide container using loam soil. Dig a shallow trench across the soil and place your lotus tuber in the trench being careful not to break or damage the growth tips. Cover all but the growth tips with soil and add an inch or two of water above the soil. Place your little lotus in a sunny location outdoors where it will receive 8 - 12 hours of sunlight per day. Keep your eye on the water level above the soil and replace any water that evaporates throughout the summer months. DO NOT fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Once you have aerial leaves you may fertilize with Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs + Humates. 

Fertilizing Instructions

Once you have aerial leaves, you may fertilize your lotus with Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs. Simply press the tabs into the soil near the roots of our lotus, taking care not to damage the roots. Do this once a month throughout the growing/blooming season for optimum growth and best bloom!

What Is Loam Soil?

Loam soil is a good mixture of Topsoil and Sand

If you are lucky enough to have good topsoil in your backyard, by all means, use your topsoil. All you will have to do is add fertilizer. If you are not so lucky--and your backyard is sand or heavy red or yellow clay, you can mix up a batch of loam soil.

 You can create your own loam soil by mixing these two ingredients together

  • 2/3  Inorganic Topsoil (Little or no organic material added)
  • 1/3  Pool Filter Sand

 Mix together thoroughly with a little water. Your soil should clump when squeezed. If your soil is mixed properly, it will not muddy your pond water.

You can purchase inexpensive bags of inexpensive / poor Topsoil at Lowes or Home-Depot. Good soil clumps together as a ball in your hand with only a little moisture. 

Don't buy brands like Scott's or Miracle-Gro, as they will contain too much organic matter that can foul your water. Buy an unbranded bag of topsoil instead.

You can purchase Pool Filter Sand at any store that sells pool supplies.

Loam soil is well suited for all aquatic plants (except oxygenators). Oxygenators rarely need to be planted, just anchored in the substrate or in a container filled with sand or 1/8  inch pea gravel.

Sand holds little water but does allow for aeration and drainage.

Some DO's and DON'TS regarding Aquatic Planting Soil  

DO NOT use potting soils ( as they are too light and will float right out of the pot). Potting Soil has organic material that will rot and foul your water!

DO NOT add too much composted material (as it is too rich in organic matter and it will ferment underwater and destroy the ecology of your pond).

DO NOT use 100% calcined clay as there is no nutritional value in calcined clay.

DO NOT add rocks, stones or pebbles to the top of your planting container as this will inhibit the growth of your plants. Plants do not grow in rocks and stones in nature!

DO NOT purchase API Aquatic Planting Media or Microbe-lift Aquatic Planting Media as these products are NOT suitable for waterlilies, lotus or most other pond plants. They are suitable for submerged grasses ONLY!
