Qingling Red Lotus is an amazing, tall, red lotus with spectacular large red blooms. Mouthwatering, fresh-red coloration and honey-yellow centers make this lotus specimen a CUSTOMER FAVORITE!
Plant your lotus in a wide (24 - 48 inches in diameter) shallow container using loam soil. Dig a trench across the top of the soil and gently place your tuber in the trench, being careful not to bruise or damage the growth tips. Do not bury the growth tips, keep them exposed. Gently add about 4 inches of water above the soil and place your lotus in FULL SUN (8 - 12 hours of sunlight daily).
Do Not fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing out of the soil. Once lotus is established, fertilize every three weeks with a slow release fertilize like 'Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs' for more bloom and robust, healthy plants.
