Q. How do I grow Lotus?
In an outdoor pool, grow in a large container in heavy loam which is enriched with good soil mix and grow in full sun. Fertilize twice monthly during rapid growth with commercial water plant fertilizer tablets. As growth proceeds, gradually lower the container to increase the water depth to 2 feet. If the Lotus is a small variety, you may not need the full 2 feet. The Lotus will not bloom until the temperature is above 80 degrees for several weeks.
