Yan Zi Yao Lotus is a dazzling specimen with an amazing display of color. First day color is vivid pink, second day brings lighter pinks with darker pink edging. Double flowers have colorful centers with lime green receptacles and sun-gold stamens.
Plant in wide, shallow container in heavy loam soil with 2 - 4 inches of water above soil. Keep growth tips exposed. Place in full sun (Lotus need 8 - 12 hours of sunlight daily to grow and bloom) and fertilize monthly after aerial leaves have appeared.
Fertilize throughout the growing/blooming season, but only after you have aerial leaves growing out of the water.
We use, sell and recommend Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs. We recommend them to help keep your plants in optimum condition for vigorous growth and best bloom!
