Yiming Red Lotus has brilliant, deep red flowers and classic form. A stately plant with attractive green foliage. Give this beauty plenty of room as it is quite large. (lotus tubers can be stored in the fridge until all danger of frost has passed)
Plant in large, wide container using heavy loam soil. Keep growth tips exposed and add 4 - 6 inches of water above soil. Place container in full sun. In a couple of weeks you will have coin leaves on the surface of the water.
DO NOT fertilize until you have aerial leaves growing out of the water. Fertilize monthly with a slow release fertilizer like Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs. We use, recommend and sell these products to keep your plants in optimum growing condition and for best bloom.
