How To Grow Lotus Mix Flowers from Seeds
Pot Size :
For Growing Lotus we need a non-draining, plastic container with a 2-inch-deep layer of clay soil. The container must be 12 inches in diameter and 8 to 10 inches deep.
Soil Requirements for Lotus Mix Flower Seeds:
Lotus need heavy topsoil or clay. Add soil until it is about 3 inch deep in the lotus container.
Lotus Mix Flower Seeds Placement :
Take a Glass or container, fill it with water and add the seeds for soaking. The ones that floats will not germinate as those are either too old or spoils seeds. The seeds that settle down in water have the chances to survive. Your seeds should start to sprout after 4 or 5 days of soaking.
When the seeds sprout and the leaf stems get about 4 inches long put them in a small container with about 3 inches of sand or a thin layer of clay soil covered with sand. Then, place the small container into the larger container containing water. Remember that lotus like warmth and light. Change the water when cloudy.
The container must be placed in a sunny location where the plant will receive at least 8 hours a day of sunlight.
A lotus does not need a pond to grow. All that is necessary is a no holes container and a few inches of water above the soil.
Common issues: In most situations, sucking pests are easily removed from the leaves of your water lotus with a strong spray of water, which also cleans away the honeydew they leave behind. Lotus leaves have fine hairs, and control with insecticides containing oils or detergents will harm or kill your plants. Remove infested plant parts whenever possible and clean up all floating debris to eliminate hiding places and breeding sites for water lotus pests.
