1, These seeds are already opened, and you can put them directly in warm clean water for germination.The water should be between 70 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
2, Change the water twice a day. Over the next 3 days, the seeds will begin to appear lumpy. Shortly after that, they will begin to sprout.
3, Put about 3 inches of soil in the bottom of a plastic bucket. Plain garden soil will work well. Add enough water to the bucket to cover the soil by about 3 inches. Let the bucket sit overnight to allow the soil to settle.
4, Plant the seed about 1 inch deep.
5, Transplant the lotus to its final growing place after a couple of weeks. This should not be done until the lotus has a number of leaves floating on top of the water in the bucket.
6, Plant the lotus in 3-5 inches of soil in its final growing place. I recommend planting 1-2 plants per pot. If the stems of Lotus are tangled together, it will easily become black and rotten.
Please put the seeds in a sunny place and enjoy planting.
About Lotus seeds:
This aquatic perennial’s tuberous roots colonize the soil at the bottom of earth-bottom ponds, or the soil in containers fully submerged in lined ponds.
The stems of the leaves can reach the surface of water that’s nearly two feet deep, and then continue upward, above the water, a few inches or even a foot farther.
The roots don’t tolerate frost, In winter, please plant Bowl Lotus indoors.
If lotus can grow in just plain water?
Seeds germinate in clear water, and the growth of seeds requires adequate nutrition. If you want to plant Lotus in clear water, you need to provide it with nutrient solution to meet its growth needs.
We recommend that you plant the lotus in nutrient-rich pond mud.
