Buddha's Seat

Fozuo Lian

 

Nelumbo nucifera

 

 

 

The wide, flat, outer petals of this lotus form a 'seat' for the shorter, ball-shaped petals in the center. The flower opens with a blush of light violet purple but changes to a warm, rich creamy white. The carpels are often bubbled lending an extra visual pop!

 How do I fertilize lotus? when do I begin to fertilize lotus?

Wait until the lotus plant has several floating leaves or begins to put up aerial leaves before adding fertilizer. Choose a good fertilizer such as Waterlily World Tablets, Pondtabbs or Landon’s Aquatic Fertilizer and follow the instructions carefully. The amount of fertilizer to use is usually based on the size of the pot and the amount of soil in the pot. For example, most of the small tablets are added at a ratio of 1 tablet per gallon of soil in the pot. Once the lotus has started to grow vigorously tablets can be added every 3-4 weeks. Stop fertilizing in late summer to allow the lotus to use up all the fertilizer in the pot before going dormant. This encourages the lotus to form better tubers.
