Description

Nelumbo nucifera

Pixie dust magic!

This tiny miniature lotus is perfect for a small bowl on your patio or on an outside window sill. The sweet little pink flowers are about 2" wide and the plant is usually less than 10" tall in a 3 gallon pot (11' wide, 7" deep) but it will grow in a much smaller container. Remember - never let it dry out! We suggest using the pot-in-pot method when growing this lotus in a pot less than 8" wide -- see below.

Flower Color: Pink
Plant Height: Miniature/Bowl
Flower Type: Semi-double, 25-25 petals
Pot size: 4"-12" wide, 3"-8" deep

Pot-in-Pot Method for Micro Lotus

EXQUISITE OF BOWL LOTUS (MICRO LOTUS)
"œLotus cultivars developed to grow and flourish in very small pots (4"-12" wide, 8" or less deep). These hybrids usually stay less than 13" tall."


We recommend growing these varieties using the pot-in-pot method.

Choose two pots:

Pot A "“ small display pot. This is the smallest of the two pots and should measure at least 4" smaller in diameter and 2" less in height than Pot B. The lotus tuber is planted in Pot A. This pretty pot can be removed from Pot B for display when lotus is blooming.

Pot B -- larger outside growing pot, not for display. Pot A should be able to sit in Pot B with about at least a 2" margin on all sides and at top.

1) Fill Pot A (display pot) ¾ full of topsoil.
2) Fill to top with water and plant tuber in Pot A.
3) Place Pot A in Pot B.
4) Slowly fill Pot B with water, making sure that there is at least 1" of water above the top rim of Pot A, the display pot with planted tuber.
5) Place in direct sun. Keep water level higher than top rim of Pot A.
