Planting & Care

Care:
  • Water Temperature: Growing water lotus from seed is easier than you might think.
  • Water lotus seed should be started in the late springtime when the water temperature is at least 70° F warm.
  • STEP 1 Where to Buy Seeds: Water Lotus seeds can be purchased on www.
  • nurserylive.
  • com.
  • High quality seeds are available with us - http://nurserylive.
  • com/buy-special-flower-seeds-online-in-india/lotus-mix-color-5-seeds-plants-in-india STEP 2 Preparing your Water Lotus Seeds: The weather and water temperature is warm and you are ready to plant your water lotus seeds.
  • The first thing you will need to do is to scar your seeds.
  • This involves filing off the pointy tip of the seeds down just 1 layer.
  • You can use a large 12" metal file - which seems to work best and is the easiest method.
  • Scarifying the lotus seed is important, because the seed will not grow otherwise and will possibly rot.
  • After the seed has been scarred, soak the seed in a tall container of water - such as an empty clean plastic soda bottle.
  • Change the water daily until you are ready to plant your water lotus sprout.
  • STEP 3 - Day 1 to 3: After the first day of soaking your water lotus seed, it can swell to almost twice the size and resemble a black olive.
  • STEP 4 - Day 4 to 5: On Day 4-5 you should see some green growth sprouting from your water lotus seeds! Continue to change out the water each day, but be careful as to not disturb the growth.
  • Continue the process until your seedling is about 6 inches long.
  • STEP 5 - Day 12: Pick a Pot: A no-holes 3-5 gallon lily pot is the best choice.
  • You can also use a black 3-5 gallon bucket.
  • Black is important, because it helps to retain heat and helps to keep the seedlings warm.
  • STEP 6 - Planting Outdoors: By this time your water lotus seedling should be large enough to plant outdoors.
  • You must wait until the weather outside is warm and the water temperature is at least 70°.
  • It is possible to start water lotus seeds indoors in an aquarium located in a sunny window.
  • Only use small minnows in the water as gold fish will eat young sprouts.
  • STEP 7 - Anchor the Seeds: Clay or Pea Gravel can be used: Before planting the lotus seeds, it is a good idea to form an anchor so they will not float to the surface of the water.
  • This is easily accomplished by wrapping regular modeling clay lightly around the seed.
  • Do not use Play Dough.
  • Modeling clay that does not dry out (the kind that comes in a brick) should be used.
  • Gravel can be used over the top of the soil medium, but it is not as effective.
  • STEP 8 - Potting: Planting medium should be 2 parts regular clay soil mixed with 1 part river sand.
  • Do not use concrete sand.
  • Lotus needs little soil to grow.
  • Allow for about 6 inches deep of loamy soil.
  • Carefully lower the pot into shallow water no more than 18" deep.
  • I grow mine in 6 inches of water.
  • In cold weather zones, deeper water might be necessary for frost and freezing control.
  • If you do not have clay soil, you can use all river sand or playground sand.
  • However, more fertilizer may be needed to grow in sand.
  • STEP 9 - Fertilize After One Season: Do not fertilize during the first year of growth.
  • No matter how good of a fertilizer you have, this will fry the tender sprouts.
  • There is enough in the large seed itself to sustain healthy growth for the first season of growth.
  • During the second season, fertilize with a good quality "water lily" fertilizer tab.


Care:
  • The Lotus plant should be fertilized sparingly for the first year.
  • Too much fertilizer may cause the Lotus foliage to burn.
  • A Lotus plant that is established can be fed every 3 or 4 weeks during the growing season.
  • Care must be taken when inserting fertilizer tabs, because the growing tip and new growth can be damaged.
  • It is important to protect the Lotus roots from freezing.
  • Lotus can winter over in the pond if the pond depth is below the freeze line for your area.
  • In late fall, the yellowed foliage should be cut off and the plant lowered to the deepest part of the pond.
  • Or you may lift the tubers after the plant has died back during the fall.
  • If you lift the tubers, store them in a cool, frost-free location until late spring.
  • To help prevent mildew and rotting, store them in living sphagnum moss.
