How to plant your lotus tuber
Plant your lotus tuber in a wide (24 - 48 inches), shallow, no-holes container using loam soil. Fill the container 2/3 full with loam soil and dig a shallow trench across the surface of the soil. Gently place the lotus tuber in the trench, taking care not to damage or break the growth tips. Cover all but the growth tips with an inch or two of soil, leaving the growth tips exposed. Gently cover the soil with 4 - 5 inches of water and place the container in a sunny location outdoors where it will receive 8 - 12 hours of sunlight daily. Never fertilize until you have aerial leaves.
How to fertilize your lotus
We recommend a slow release fertilizer like Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Once you have aerial leaves growing out of the water, you may fertilize your lotus with 1/2 the recommended dose of fertilizer. The second application of fertilizer will be two weeks after the first application, using the recommended dosage. It is important to fertilize your lotus once each month throughout the growing/blooming season. Your last dose should be in early September as this will allow your lotus to go into dormancy naturally.
