Nelumbo nucifera Sacred Lotus - 2pcs seeds/packet - goldenpalm.hu

 

One of the most popular plants in cultivation in Asia, this aquatic plant produces circular, velvety leaves and large pink flowers.

Lotus is a non-native aquatic plant requiring plenty of
space and a full sun location to thrive. It is nothing less
than spectacular in bloom, the soft pink blossom up to 8-inches
across opening on top of a stiff stalk emerging directly from
below the water. The easily recognized, large fruit structure
develops as the flower opens and turns brown when the flower
fades and the petals fall into the water. Leaves are enormous,
sometimes reaching 2 feet across. The fruit is often used by
professional florists in dried arrangements.

Use and Management


Lotus plants are extremely aggressive and should be
planted into containers in the water garden to keep them from
escaping and permanently rooting into the soil beneath the
water. Once they become established in the soil, they are
difficult to get rid of. Containerizing plants is a good way to
enjoy Lotus without the danger of them becoming invasive in
the pond or lake.


Lotus should be planted in a container filled with garden
soil or potting mix. A shallow and wide container shape is
better than a tall, narrow container. The garden soil can be
mixed with one-fifth well decomposed cow manure.
Incorporate fertilizer at an equivalent rate of about one-quarter
cup 10-10-10 per gallon of soil or media to help stimulate
growth. Before filling the container, place a small plastic bag
filled with sand at the bottom of the container to keep the
container from floating in the pond. Plant the rhizome at the
edge of the container so it can grow horizontally across the top.
Place a 1- or 2-inch layer of sand or gravel over the top of the
media after the rhizome is planted in the pot to keep media and
soil in the container. Lower the container into 6 inches of water
until growth begins. Then it can be set so the bottom of the
container is no more than 18 inches below the water surface. If
the water is too deep, place a brick or concrete block under the
container. Do not construct containers from treated lumber
since growth could be severely inhibited.
Small cultivars are better suited for a smaller garden and
could include ‘Momo Boton’ with rose-colored flowers and
smaller leaves than the species. The native Lotus, Nelumbo
lutea has light yellow flowers and is hardy into USDA hardiness
zone 4.
