  • 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.
