Published on March 8, 2017

Time to get your hands dirty and plant some lotus tubers. Larry Nau of Bergen Water Gardens takes you step-by-step in how to plant a lotus tuber and, specifically, a bull lotus.

Lotus tubers grow into magnificent, hardy plants which bloom multiple times throughout the summer. The pots may be grown in another decorative pot on a deck or patio or in a watergarden. ~ Larry Nau

Nau discusses how he likes to use heavy topsoil for planting but also how commercially made aquatic plant media can work to grow lotuses. Also included are tips on how to fertilize aerial leafs once the sprout and options for different sized pots. Is it Spring yet?
