Guidelines for growing Micro Lotus:

  • Start with a pot size of 15 cm or about 6 inches in diameter. This will assure good growth and flower production. The smallest pot which may be used is 6 cm or 2.3 inches in diameter – this is only recommended for the experienced grower.
  • Plant tuber when average temperature is above 68 F (20 C)
  • Plant in a well ventilated, outdoor area
  • Make sure pot stays full of water – micro lotus will dry up quickly due to their small pot size
  • Flowering temperature is 77 F (25 C) to 95 F (35 C)
  • Water is best at a neutral pH ( 7.0)
  • Fertilize every 15 days with a weak application of aquatic fertilizer (1/4 Tablet)
  • Remove old leaves and flowers only when “dead, with no signs of green”. This will encourage new growth.
  • Allow for winter dormancy but do not let tuber freeze.
  • Watering them 3 times a day during hot summer time
  • Cleaning up algae when you water the plant
  • keeping on eyes on the aphids on the plant, because the plant is small so it would be easy to get aphids.

Because of their small size, Micro Lotus can be a challenge to grow.
