How to plant your lotus tuber
Plant your lotus tuber in a wide, (24 - 48 inches wide) shallow, no-holes container using loam soil. Add 4 - 6 inches of water above the soil and place in a sunny area outdoors (8 - 12 hours of sunlight daily). Do not 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. Fertilize throughout the growing/ blooming season making the last dose in early September. This allows your lotus to go into dormancy naturally.
