Feeding Your Lotus

Lotus are VERY heavy feeders. We recommend feeding lotus every 2 weeks during the growing season. For best results you'll want to begin your bi-monthly feeding regimen as soon as several arial leaves have developed.

To feed your lotus: Gently pull the container out of the water. Push 2 or 3 plant food tablets into the soil with your finger. Fill the holes with soil to keep the fertilizer from releasing into the pond, tub or container garden. Gently return the container to the water.

Aquatic Plant FoodWe highly recommend Pondtabbs Aquatic Plant Food tablets. However, you can use any type of pond plant food that works for you. If you choose to use a granular plant food, you can wrap some in a single layer of paper towel and press it down into the soil.

TIP - Happy Lotus will thrive!
If your lotus are suffering from 'failure to thrive' during the growing season - chances are you need to feed them. Pull them up and feed them as noted above. If they do not perk up and thrive within a couple of days, they are either lacking adequate sunlight, the container is too small or the water is too cold.

**Only feed your Lotus during the growing season**
