Momo Botan Minima Lotus has dreamy, rosy-red blooms and handsome green foliage. Another customer favorite from Maine to the Pacific Coast. (Lotus tubers can be kept in the fridge until proper planting time for your area.) EXQUISITE OF BOWL.
Plant this lotus in full sun (after danger of frost has passed) in a wide, shallow container using heavy loam soil, keeping growth tips exposed. Momo Botan prefers shallow water, so add 2-3" of water above the soil and place container on deck, porch or patio or shallow area of your pond. In a week or ten days, coin leaves will appear on the surface of the water.
DO NOT fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Fertilize monthly throughout the growing season with Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs for vigorous growth and best bloom.
