Chawan Basu Lotus is a superb specimen with crisp, white cup shaped blooms that are edged in vibrant pink! An attractive selection for tubs or containers on the patio or at the shallow end of your pond or water feature. Makes a beautiful segue between red and pink lotus as it complements both. Chawan Basu Lotus has handsome green foliage. A lotus that blooms all season long.
Plant in heavy loam soil using wide, shallow container, keeping growth tips on your tuber exposed. Add 4 - 6 inches of water over soil and place in full sun. Coin leaves will float on the surface of the water a couple of weeks after your lotus is planted.
DO NOT FERTILIZE until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Fertilize monthly as lotus are heavy feeders. We recommend and sell Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs to help keep your pond plants strong and blooming all season long.
