How do I fertilize lotus? When do I start fertilizing 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 such as Waterlily World Tablets and Pondtabbs are added at a ratio of 1-2 tablets 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.
