The President Lotus is statuesque and stunning in appearance. This single petal red is a show-stopper! One of our most popular reds, coast to coast! Makes a great focal point in a container or tub on your deck or patio or in your pond. (Your tuber can be kept in the refrigerator until proper planting time in your area )
Plant in a very large, wide, shallow container using heavy loam soil. Keep growth tips exposed and place container in full sun. Add 4 - 6 inches of water above soil. In a week or two, coin leaves will appear on the surface of the water. DO NOT fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing up, out of the water.
Once you have aerial leaves, fertilize throughout the growing/blooming stages with a slow release fertilizer like Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs. We recommend and sell these fertilizers to help keep your pond plants in optimum condition for vigorous growth and best bloom!
